The plan would have worked perfectly, except a store employee stole the robbers' getaway car, according to CBS Sacramento.
|These guys had their getaway car stolen by|
an employee of the fast food joint they were trying to
rob, say police.
Imagine the look on robbers' Gabriel Gonzalez and Jeremy Lovitt when they got their loot and found their car missing.
The employee didn't keep the getaway car. He just hid it behind a building down the street.
Well, they say you should never leave your keys in the car. The vehicle might get stolen. Even if the vehicle belongs to someone who steals things for a living.
I don't know if this is legal, but if had been the employee who stole the robbers' car, I would have had more fun with it. Maybe take it for a joy ride. Or find some creative ways to vandalize it. Maybe root around the Burger King dumpster, find a bunch of rotting hamburger and fill the car with it. Then nicely return the car to the robbers and apologize for "borrowing:" it.
I wonder if the police would have let the Burger King employee keep the robbers' car. After all, they presumably weren't going to use the car again, having been bundled off to jail
