NEWPORT-A man armed brandishing a gun and wearing a ski
mask robbed Sonic Drive-Inn on West Highway 25/70 just past midnight on Friday,
Dec. 21, the Newport Police Department reported.
The unknown robber locked an assistant manager and an
employee in the restaurant's walk-in cooler and fled the scene with $914 in
cash, a NPD report stated.
Assistant Manager Tiffany Webster said the robber, who
was between 5-foot, 10 inches and 6-feet tall, and slender, entered Sonic
through the front door, pointed a black gun at her, and started yelling,
"Get down on the floor." He wore a black ski mask and blue jeans, and
appeared to have the voice of a white male, according to the report.
