EDMOND, Okla - It's the last thing Parrish Foster would have ever imagined at his neighborhood fast-food joint.

Foster said, "You get this false sense of security being in Edmond and you forget bad things happen everywhere."

Around 3:40 a.m. last Tuesday morning, two men, armed with handguns, entered the lobby of the Edmond Jack-In-The-Box.

Two overnight employees were ordered to empty five registers and unlock the safe.

One of the robbers told them "get down and there isn't gonna be a problem."

The thieves escaped out the back door with a trash bag full of cash.

Police are hoping the restaurant's surveillance video and a vehicle description from drive-thru customers will lead to these brazen bandits before they strike again.

In the meantime, this 24-hour Jack-In-The-Box is changing policy; no more dining room access after 10 p.m.

Courtney Foster said, "Absolutely. I think that's great because that will give them an added sense of security they've lost now."
