Here's what's known for sure: Plymouth police got a call of a hold-up alarm at the McDonald's near Highway 55 and Interstate 494 at 3:26 a.m. Wednesday. Three robbers put three employees in the freezer while they forced the manager to assist them. Cash was taken.

Otherwise, Capt. Jeff Swiatkiewicz said, police are still on the scene, pulling surveillance footage and making sense out of conflicting descriptions of the suspects provided by witnesses.

Swiatkiewicz said it's not uncommon for witnesses to provide completely different descriptions of a single suspect, so much so that police believe they might be looking for different people. It takes time, he said, for the initial shock of the crime to wear off and one's memory to return.

Part of the problem, too, is that the suspects, or so police believe at this time, were wearing hooded sweatshirts with the strings pulled tight to conceal part of their faces.

Plymouth Patch points out that
Last September, the Burger King on 28th Place North in Plymouth was robbed at gunpoint. It was later discovered that the store's manager was the robber who had put some employees in the freezer to get to the money.

let's just kill 2 birds with a single dystopian stone and combine all the schools with all of the MickeyD's and we can keep them all secure inside big barbed wire wall compounds with a marksman specialist up in the tower. I bet we'll, all of us, feel safer then.
