Metro police are warning people who like to make late-night runs to their favorite fast food restaurants. Someone is targeting customers.

Police said that since August, there have been at least seven robberies involving people waiting in their vehicles for fast food. Most of the robberies have occurred near Interstate 15 and W. Sahara Avenue.

Between 11:30 p.m. and 3 a.m., a man described as very heavy set with a beard approaches customers armed with a gun and demands cash. Police believe he's between 25 and 35 years old.

In one instance, the man fled the scene of a robbery in a white sedan.

Police remind people to be vigilant when making purchases at drive-thru windows.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Robbery Section at 702-828-3591 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. You may also leave information online at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
