MADRAS, OR (KPTV) -

A Burger King employee and his brother are behind bars after staging a robbery at the Madras restaurant, according to police.

The robbery happened at 10 p.m. June 10. Investigators were initially told an unknown armed man with a skeleton mask confronted two Burger King employees and stole cash. The employees said they couldn't identify the robber.

On June 16, police said they were able to identify and arrest a suspect, 30-year-old Timothy Edward Walker of Madras.

Detectives said they recovered the gun used in the robbery and cash stolen from the restaurant at Walker's home.

As the investigation continued, police said they learned Walker planned the robbery with his brother, 27-year-old Kristopher Allen Walker, who was one of the employees working at Burger King the night of the crime.

Investigators said Kristopher Walker was taking out the garbage when he met his brother outside the restaurant. The pair then went back inside and police said Timothy Walker confronted the other unsuspecting employee with a gun.

Kristopher Walker was arrested Monday and booked into the Jefferson County Jail.

Timothy and Kristopher Walker are facing charges of robber and theft. Timothy Walker is facing additional charges of burglary and menacing, while Kristopher Walker is also being charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Officer Mike Rochelle or Detective Mel Brown at 541-475-2424.
