Police Seek Tips on Hardees Attempted Armed Robbery

Police are looking for tips about an attempted armed robbery at Springfield’s “Rock ‘N Roll Hardees” on Stevenson Drive.

Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers says a black, stocky man about six feet tall in his 50’s entered the restaurant with a tan paper towel over his face and demanded money. The cashier couldn’t give him any, so the man ran away while firing a gun once over his shoulder. The crime occured on October 25 shortly after 8:00 p.m.

Any annonymous information could be eligible for up to a one-thousand dollar reward. Call Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers at 788-8427, or text your tips. Type TIP-672 plus a message and send to CRIMES.
