SLIDELL, La. (AP) - It's bad enough working at a fast-food restaurant when it seems everyone else is feasting on turkey and trimmings. It's worse when a gunman takes advantage of a slow night to hold up the Burger King where you work. Then a joker suggests it was a rival chain's onetime mascot, the Hamburglar.

Slidell Police Detective Daniel Seuzeneau says two women working at 7:30 p.m. Thursday were cleaning in the back when a gunman made them open the cash register, grabbed some cash and ran.

The department's Facebook page had the robber's description and a photo of an unidentifiable person running in front of the restaurant. Shortly afterward, a reader posted a "wanted" poster of McDonald's Hamburglar.

Seuzeneau says he didn't fit the description but gave people a good laugh.
