A robbery at a local fast-food restaurant is caught on camera.
It happened during the lunch hour on Saturday at the Dairy Queen near SE 170th and SE Division streets.
Police hope surveillance video will help catch the crook.
Just before 1 p.m. on Saturday, surveillance video caught the man walking into the Dairy Queen and going straight to the counter.
The store supervisor helped the man and said he ordered a blizzard, but that's not what he really wanted.
"I gave him his total and then, instead of giving me money, he went ahead and gave me a note that said like 'give me all your money' and 'I have a gun,'" said Nick Bigelow, the supervisor on duty.
The video shows the man pretending like he was pulling that note from his wallet.
Bigelow said the suspect seemed a little bit jittery and nervous when he ordered the blizzard. He said the suspect never showed a weapon but at one point did reach into his coat and acted like he was concealing a gun in his jacket.
The supervisor handed over the cash and watched the man leave.
"I went out the back door to see where he went and he was nowhere to be found. I don't know if he hopped in a car," added Bigelow.
Police said it's unclear whether the suspect left in a car or on foot. Bigelow said he only got away with about $50 or $60.
"It's kind of a dumb time to rob a store - in broad daylight when there is businesses around that can see you. We didn't even have that much money in the till to start off the day so it wasn't that smart of him to do that," said Bigelow.
The suspect is described as a white man in late 30s to early 40s.
He had slight facial hair and was last seen wearing a blue watch cap, blue jacket, jeans, a gray T-shirt and white athletic shoes.
