Burger King Staff Member Reportedly Distracted Manager With Food Order To Let In Armed Robbers, Reports Say

Floyd County Jail

A staffer from a Georgia Burger King is being accused of helping two men rob the fast food chain. According to WSB, Rome authorities say, Derricus Wade, the employee, attempted to distract the manager by ordering a burger. 

The incident occurred on Sunday night. A police report says that the manager saw Wade standing at the side of the door and he informed the manager that he was hungry and requested a burger. The manager said he allowed Wade to go inside the store and began to make him the burger. Wade conversed with another employee as they walked to the back. Shortly after, reports say Wade allowed two men who wore ski masks to enter the Burger King’s back door entrance. The manager informed officials that one man aimed a gun at him and an employee as he

“directed them toward the safe.” 

Once they got to the safe, both men took close to $1,500 and put it in a plastic bag. They then urged the manager to open the cash register as they took $420.63 from one register and $1,429.77 from the register at the drive-thru. The suspects managed to flee the scene with almost $3,500. 

The suspects demanded that they be given the security footage; however, they instead fled with

“four electronic boxes that controlled the food displays.” 

The boxes were worth $375 and were later retrieved by officials in addition to cell phones. 

Wade was later arrested and charged with armed robbery. The other suspects have not been captured.
