“He didn’t threaten me or anything, just said you’ve got 30 seconds to give me the money,” Pfirrman said.

According to the police report, $385 was stolen.

The man didn’t take anything other than the cash and ran out the back door, according to Pfirrman.

Pfirrman said he was surprised at the man’s exit route because of traffic “coming in all the time” to the drive-thru.

“I am surprised he didn’t get clipped or caught up in some cars,” he said.
