Police are looking for two men who they said robbed a Taco Bell in Connecticut Monday with a machete and a crowbar, forcing employees to open the safe and empty their own pockets of valuables.
Police responded to reports of a robbery at Taco Bell on Shunpike Road in Cromwell around 2:30 a.m. after a man with a machete and another who had a crowbar went in through an unlocked door and made the employees open the safe before robbing the workers as well, authorities said.
After that, the robbers led the employees out of the back and had them wait outside while they fled with money, police said. It wasn't clear how much they were able to steal.
No one was injured in the robbery.
Cromwell officers who responded to the robbery saw a tan Honda Accord leaving the area with its headlights off and tried to stop it, but the driver fled at a high speed and the chase ended on Route 9.
