Cop at Doughnut Shop Nabs Robber

<i> Associated Press</i>

A woman robbing a suburban doughnut shop pretended to be a waitress when a customer came to the drive-up window. Trouble was, she bungled the order--and the customer was a cop.

Cheltenham Township Police Sgt. Michael Regan wanted a large coffee with cream and sugar. The woman at the suburban Dunkin’ Donuts had an unfamiliar face, and she delivered a medium black with the cup only half full.

He parked in a remote corner, watched and waited.

She walked into a back room and returned with two employees.


“Then I saw her make one of them open the register, and when he did that she scooped up the money,” he said.

That’s when Regan called for backup and drove toward the store.
