Employee cleared in McDonald’s case

Aspen Times Staff Report

Police say they have eliminated at least one possible suspect in the recent robbery of cash receipts from McDonald’s.

The employee who was carrying the cash, concealed within bank pouches stuffed into a McDonald’s meal sack, is not suspected of being involved in the heist, according to Aspen Police.

Police detected inconsistencies between the woman’s initial descriptions of the robbery suspect and those of other witnesses.

The robbery occurred Aug. 21 at about 2:30 p.m. as the employee was walking to the bank to make the daily deposit.

The woman, whose name has not been released, initially said the man who snatched the bag from her hand was blond. Others described him as either Latino or possibly from a Mediterranean country such as Spain or Italy.

But after a subsequent interview, police determined that the woman, whose command of English is said to be imperfect, did not mean the robber appeared to be Anglo, but possibly a light-haired Latino.
