Authorities are searching for a brazen armed thief who was caught on camera robbing a Fort Lauderdale restaurant full of customers.
The robbery happened the night of Dec. 22 at the Kentucky Fried Chicken at 3061 W. Sunrise Boulevard when the masked man walked in holding a handgun, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.
The robber walked past a line of customers then jumped over the counter and demanded money from employees, officials said. He emptied out one register, yanked out a cash drawer then struggled to remove a second drawer, officials said.
The suspect then climbed back over the counter and fled with one drawer and a bag of cash, officials said.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
