MONTICELLO, Minn. - Wright County Sheriff's investigators are looking for a suspect responsible for robbing the Burger King in Monticello early Thursday.
The suspect may also be responsible for another incident in Clearwater hours earlier.
Deputies were dispatched to the Burger King restaurant on 7th Street East shortly after 5:15 a.m. on a report of an armed robbery. An employee of the restaurant was opening the restaurant when a white male dressed in all black clothing forced the employee into the Burger King at gunpoint and took an undetermined amount of money.
A search for the suspect turned up nothing.
Earlier in the morning deputies had been summoned to the Burger King in Clearwater after a man approached an employee who was about to leave the parking lot around 12:45 a.m. and tapped on the window with a handgun.
The employee sped out of the parking lot before anything could happen. The suspect description is similar to the one in Monticello, but at this point investigators aren't sure if the same man was involved in both incidents.
Anyone with information may call the Wright County Sheriff's Office at 763 682-1162
