Big Bear Taco Bell Robbed at Closing

BIG BEAR – San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who robbed a fast food restaurant late Monday night.

The man, anywhere between 5-feet, 5-inches to 5-feet, 9-inches, with a thin build, robbed a Taco Bell in the north lake area at about 10 p.m. Deputies responded to the call about the man, who was wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a gray hoodie sweatshirt and a bandana that covered his face. The description provided by Deputy Kyle Glozer did not include the suspect’s race.

The Taco Bell in Big Bear, nestled among the pine trees surrounding the lake, was the scene of an armed robbery Monday night

The suspect confronted the store employee at the front door of the restaurant located at 41170 Big Bear Blvd. as she was attempting to close the restaurant for the night. Producing a handgun, the masked suspect guided the employee behind the counter where he confronted another restaurant employee. Both employees were instructed to open the safe, but neither was able to get the it open. The suspect then demanded money from the cash drawer. The employees emptied both cash drawers, placing the money into a bag that was ultimately taken by the suspect, who fled.

Police said a black “squared” Sport Utility Vehicle, possibly a Dodge Nitro, was reported to be driving through the Taco Bell parking lot moments before the suspect confronted the victims. Police did not report anyone who saw the suspect flee in a vehicle, however.

No one was injured during the crime, nor were there any other witnesses to the crime. Glozer said the sheriff’s department is seeking assistance to identify the suspect; contact the Big Bear station (909 866-0100).
