Lawrence Police are looking for a man armed with a handgun who early Sunday morning robbed Taco John's, 2309 Haskell Ave.

The gunman, wearing a bag over his head, entered the business at 12:06 a.m. as two employees a man and a woman were closing the restaurant, according to a police report. The robber demanded money and then helped himself to the cash in the register before fleeing, police said.

The robber was described as a black man who was wearing blue sweat pants, a white T-shirt, and a blue cloth bag over his head with holes cut for the eyes and the nose. He was about 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighed up to 250 pounds.

Police released information about the robbery today.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 832-7501.

He should have been easy to spot, driving back to Topeka with a blue sack on his head.

(sorry,couldn't resist this post)

Not to mention the lack of a security booth and even when they have them, they leave the door open.

Halfwits!

The police should do random stakeouts.

Drop one or two of these guys where they satnd and this s+++ will stop.

Or maybe the owner should do it on his or her own.

Perfectly legal except that the liberals would fall all over themselves about the head of the robber being blown all over the store, despite the fact that the robber, by displaying the firearm, had already indicated his/her willingness to take a life over a few bucks.

Shoot the robbers where they stand and then go to the movies!

Thanks.

Marion.

Some employee is going to get killed in a robbery because their employer was too cheap to keep two employees on duty at closing.

When that happens - and it will - I hope they are sued enough to bankrupt the whole corporation.

A couple of stakeouts run by cops with 12 gauge riot guns would stop this sort of thing.

At the first sight of a gun in the robber's hand, KAPOW!; right through the brainbucket!

Thanks.

Nope, this guy is from Lawrence, the east side. Good luck! Lawrence has become another Kansas city or Topeka !

I can't believe a Topekan would drive clear across town for this one. :-)

"The gunman, wearing a bag over his head, entered the business at 12:06 a.m..." That's almost never a good sign.
