Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Frequent Customer Robs Taco Bell!

Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Frequent Customer Robs Taco Bell!

If I ever turn to a life of stick-ups, the last restaurants I'd ever try and rob are the ones I visit all the time--in other words, you're safe, Break of Dawn, Memphis, Kareem's, Surfin' Chicken, and many more. Simple logic, right? Of course, the only part of that phrase that the average Taco Bell customer understands is the first word, and so we pay a visit to Daniel Ungarsky of Pennsylvania, the man charged with robbing a Taco Bell in which he was a frequent customer.

From Wilkes-Barre:

A female employee told police a man, identified as Ungarsky, entered the restaurant at about 6:35 p.m. Sunday and passed a note that stated, "Give me the money now." Ungarsky told the employee, "I have a (expletive) gun, I'll shoot you. Don't hit the panic button. Don't tell anyone. Open the drawers and give me the money."

The employee handed Ungarsky several $1 and $5 bills. Ungarsky then asked where were the $100, $50 and $20 bills, the criminal complaint says.

Ungarsky was told Taco Bell does not accept large bills. He instructed the employee to open a second cash register, allegedly getting away with a small amount of money.

Another employee told police Ungarsky was a regular customer. Police said that an employee identified Ungarsky from a photo array.
