GOLDSBORO, N.C. - One man is behind bars and another wanted in a fast food armed robbery.

It happened around 1:18 a.m. Monday at the McDonald’s located on Hwy 70 West in Goldsboro.

Police say two men armed with a handgun entered the business through the drive through windows while another stood outside as a lookout. Once inside, the suspects demanded money, forcing a manager and another employee into the office, where they pistol whipped the manager before fleeing the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A short time later, a Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted a suspicious vehicle leaving the area and stopped it about a ¼ mile west of the restaurant. One occupant was positively identified as a suspect in the robbery. A search of the vehicle turned up a handgun and stolen money.

Wanted in the incident is 25-year-old Joseph Simms. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Investigation into the incident is still underway to determine the identity of the third person involved in the crime. If you have any information as to the identity of the third individual and /or the location of Joseph Simms, contact the Goldsboro Police Department at 919-705-6572 or Goldsboro Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
