Gunmen rob Whataburger, suspected in other holdups
Mesquite police say two gunmen struck a Whataburger this past week, the latest in a series of early-morning robberies at North Texas fast-food restaurants.
The men walked into the Whataburger in the 2900 block of North Galloway Avenue, near Town East Boulevard, just before 4 a.m. Tuesday.
Surveillance footage shows one robber holding customers at gunpoint while the other forces an employee into an office and steals cash.
The same two men are suspected in a series of recent robberies across Dallas-Fort Worth, police say.
Police have not been able to get detailed descriptions of the robbers, who have worn all black and covered their faces with bandannas. They’ve fled the scene in a four-door sedan that is light blue, silver or gray, possibly a Nissan Altima.
