Nearly $2,000 Stolen from West Side Wendy’s

Nearly $2,000 was stolen from the Springfield Wendy’s on Lindbergh Boulevard early Monday morning — police are looking for leads.

Employees told police a black man in his 20’s wearing a blue and white bandana over his face entered the store through the back door shortly after 1:00; unlocked as they were expecting a delivery. The man brandished a black handgun and took money from the safe and two cash drawers.

Wendy’s does not have security cameras, and police couldn’t glean information from nearby gas station surveillance.
