A customer at the Cedar Lake Road Little Caesar’s paid for a cheese pizza with cash before asking a cashier for money and, when he declined, threatening to come back to the store and shoot him.
The customer came into the store around 9:15 p.m. on Oct. 4 and, after ordering his pizza, stood by the cash registers.
The cashier was about to drop money from the register into the restaurant’s safe, when the customer spoke up.
“You should drop that money in my pocket,” he said.
When the cashier asked him to take a step back, the customer became angry.
He said he worked for the Better Business Bureau and that the cashier “didn’t know who he was messing with,” according to the police report.
The customer then walked toward the exit but, as he was leaving, he turned around.
He said he was going to come back and shoot the cashier, and he raised his sweater’s pocket with his right hand as if it held a weapon.
The cashier described the customer as a black male, 5-feet-10-inches tall, about 160 pounds, with facial hair and pierced ears, wearing black pants and a black-and-white striped, zipped-up hooded sweatshirt over a black t-shirt—all splattered with white paint. A surveillance camera also caught an image of the customer.A police officer stayed at the Little Caesar’s in an unmarked car until close on Oct. 4 but didn’t see anyone matching the cashier’s description.
