Wendy's on Wrightsboro robbed

Richmond County authorities are searching for two men after an armed robbery at a Wrightsboro Road fast food restaurant early Monday morning.

According to an incident report, three employees were leaving Wendy’s, 3342 Wrightsboro Road, around 1:40 a.m. when they were approached in the parking lot by two men in ski masks – one with a handgun – demanding the bank deposit bag.

After the employees convinced the men that they didn’t have the bag, the men took cell phones and keys and then fled on foot. Police said the keys to the restaurant were not among the items taken.

The victims told authorities they believe the bandits were hiding in the bushes waiting for them to come out of the restaurant.
