Gunman orders food, robs Taco Bell

A late night run to the border today turned into an armed robbery at the Taco Bell on Macon Road.

The robbery happened when a man pulled into the drive-thru at 2:18 a.m. in a small, dark car with blue neon lighting on the interior, said Columbus Police Sgt. Frank Massa. He ordered some food from the restaurant at 3527 Macon Road and then pulled up to the window.

"When he got to the window to pay for it, and the guy opened the register, that's when he robbed him," Massa said.

The suspect is described as a man in his 20s, wearing dark clothes, dark sunglasses and having silver teeth. He had some type of handgun, Massa said.

"No injuries reported, and no shots fired," the sergeant added.
