Crime Stoppers: Robbery At Cherokee Boulevard Krystal Restaurant

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of two robbery suspects from the holdup of a Krystal restaurant at 307 Cherokee Boulevard.

On Dec. 13, around 12:45 a.m., two black males entered the lobby of the restaurant and forced the employees to the ground at gunpoint. One of the suspects led the manager to the office and forced her to open the safe, making off with an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing in a gold Nissan Altima, but not before leaving their pictures on in-store video and fingerprints from one of them on a beer can they were seen throwing to the ground just before the robbery.

The suspects appear to both be black males, the first around 6’ tall with a medium build, ear-length dreadlocks, wearing a blue shirt and dark pants, and armed with a dark revolver. The second suspect was around 5’10” tall with short dreadlocks, wearing a camo hoody and a red bandanna.  

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects or the burglary itself, should contact Crime Stoppers. A confidential call could result in a cash reward.

Call Crime Stoppers at 423 698-3333.
