Florida man pretending to be McDonald’s cashier fakes taking order, takes cash, deputies say

Would you like fries with that? How about a side of cash?

Deputies said a man walked into a McDonald’s in Kissimmee on Sunday night wearing an employee uniform, walked behind a cash register and helped another man place an order.

Seconds later, the cash register drawer opened, and surveillance footage showed the man posing as a worker grab some cash before running out one door of the restaurant, while the other man ran out of the other door.

Deputies from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday’s incident is the second one involving the same man wearing a McDonald’s uniform. Investigators said the first incident happened at another restaurant Dec. 25, 2019.

Deputies described the suspect wearing the McDonald’s uniform as a man in his mid-20s who is approximately 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs around 170 pounds. They described the second suspect in Sunday’s incident as a male in the late 20s, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing around 230 pounds.

Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to call the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at 407-348-2222.
