Direct from police:
The manager told officers he left the business at about 2:00 a.m. and went to his car to put some items in the trunk. The manager went back inside the business, locked up, and returned to his car with the weekend deposits. He placed the deposit bags inside the car, when he was confronted by an unknown male. The suspect pointed a handgun at him and said, “You know what I want.” The victim gave the suspect the deposit bags, who also demanded his car keys and cell phone. The victim handed both to the suspect, who threw them over a nearby wall.
