Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information and the identity of three suspects from an armed robbery that occurred at the Hardees at 4831 Highway 58 on April 11, at 9:17 p.m.

The employees of the restaurant were in the process of cleaning the store when three black males entered the store, all brandishing handguns. The suspects held the employees at gunpoint while demanding the store’s money from the registers.

The suspects fled the store and ran toward the wooded area behind it.

All three suspects are about 20 years old, 5’6” to 5’9” tall, and thin built. One was wearing a gray hoodie.  The second was wearing a Carhartt-style jacket. The last suspect was wearing a black hoodie. 

Anyone with information on the identity of these robbery suspects should contact Crime Stoppers. A confidential call could result in a cash reward.
