Armed With Rifles, Robbers Hold Up Clovis Sonic Restaurant

Posted: Updated:
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) -

Clovis police need your help in finding two men who robbed the Sonic Drive-in on Willow Avenue and Nees Avenues in Clovis.

The masked men aimed hunting rifles directly at employees during the robbery.

Clovis police say the two are young, in their late teen or early twenties.

Surveillance video shows one of the crooks, who appears to be the leader, ordering employees to the ground. However, when the worker doesn't move fast enough he grabs him by his shirt and shoves him.

While one of them points the rifle directly at the employees, the other grabs a worker and orders him to open the safe.

Police say the armed robbers then ordered everyone to the ground. They left in a red, smaller, four-door car.

Officers say a third guy was seen waiting for them in the car.

Thankfully, no shots were fired and none of the employees were hurt, but Clovis police want these guys off the street before they do it again.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 559-621-STOP. Remember you can remain anonymous and earn yourself a reward up to $1,000.
