Dallas police are searching for a drive-through bandit who ordered food to-go but then demanded a side of cash.
The robber on Thursday morning hit three fast food restaurants along or near North Central Expressway in Dallas -- a McDonald's and a Whataburger in Oak Lawn and a Wendy's in North Dallas, police said.
In each case, the man in his late 20s or early 30s, placed an order at the drive-through. When he drove up to pay, he would show a gun and demand money, police said.
Authorities describe the robber as about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with a sparse mustache and beard. He has numerous tattoos down both arms. He was driving a maroon Ford Expedition with a beige interior. The vehicle also has gold or copper-colored running boards, a luggage rack and a sun roof.
