Slidell Burger King robbed on Thanksgiving Day

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.

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday.
