OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was taken into custody after he allegedly tried to steal money from his former coworker.

On Dec. 13, officers were called to the Sonic Drive-Thru, located in the 1400 block of W. Britton Rd., in reference to a robbery.

A carhop at the restaurant told police that she was delivering food to a vehicle when the driver told her to go to the passenger’s side of the SUV. When she got to the passenger’s side, the victim told officers that 39-year-old Danta Thomas got out of the vehicle.

Thomas, who was a former employee of the fast-food restaurant, allegedly demanded that the victim give him the money that she had on her person. At one point, the victim says that Thomas began feeling her pockets in an attempt to find money.

“[The victim] was able to gain distance, hitting [Thomas] with the red food tray,” the arrest affidavit states.

According to the affidavit, Thomas didn’t get any money, but he left the scene with four cheeseburgers.

Thomas was arrested on a complaint of robbery by force.
