Herndon police are searching for a suspect in connection with a robbery at the Burger King (598 Elden St.) on Friday.

Just as the store opened around 6:15 a.m., the suspect confronted staff with a gun and demanded money. Staff filled a bag the suspect gave them with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police, according to police. The suspect then left by foot. No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Jeffrey Lange at  703-435-6881, extension 2304 or via email at [email protected] Individuals can also call the police department’s non-emergency number at 703-435-6846.

    Why would the store have a bag of money before it opened? Or, was it filled with burgers, perhaps?

      Clearly an inside job.

        My guess too.

      It could be possible they empty the tills the night before, make their deposits and leave a small amount for each register the following day.

      For instance when I worked retail in the 90s we kept $200 in small bills in each drawer at the local E.B. Games
