Drive-thru robbery goes awry


A would-be thief used a unique way of attempting to rob an unsuspecting motorist in Vernon .

Last night at around 11 pm, while waiting in the vehicle after ordering from the drive-thru of a local fast food restaurant, a lone male produced a shotgun and demanded money from the motorist.

The driver promptly fled the scene by driving out of the drive-thru and calling police. 

A 34 year-old man was arrested and could face 15 counts of firearm related charges.
