That’s one cool clerk.
An employee at a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop in Missouri remained calm and collected during an armed robbery earlier this week, coolly handing over cash and the register till as a suspect pointed a gun just inches from his face, surveillance video released by the Kansas City Police Department shows.
The suspect entered the restaurant at 3900 Broadway in Kansas City at about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday and placed an order after briefly scanning the menu. The clerk then begins to punch in the suspect’s order as he sways back and forth in front of the register. The suspect then pulls a handgun from the front pocket of his hooded sweatshirt and cocks it before motioning to the cash register while pointing the gun at the clerk.
As the suspect yells at someone behind the counter, the clerk calmly removes a plastic glove from his left hand and begins emptying the register, handing over wads of cash in several denominations. The suspect apparently becomes agitated, prompting the clerk to offer him the entire register till. The suspect then grabs another single bill from atop the till before adding it to his cash and walking out of the restaurant, the video shows.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call investigators at (816) 474-8477.
