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.

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