Manteca Police are still searching for the identity of a man that used a note and a shotgun to rob the drive-thru window attendant of a north Manteca McDonald’s Wednesday night.

Just after 8:30 p.m. the female worker that was staffing the restaurant’s first drive-thru window – which handles monetary transactions – was first given a note that she was being robbed, according to Manteca Police Department Lieutenant Tony Souza.

The driver of a flat-black, 1980s-era Ford F-150 described as a white male in his 20s then pointed a shotgun out of the window, took an undisclosed amount of cash, and fled by driving over the landscaped median that separates drive-thru traffic.

He was last seen pulling out of the parking lot headed west on Lathrop Road with his lights off, and then fleeing south down Union Road at a high rate of speed.

According to Souza, Manteca Police Department detectives are reviewing security footage from that night, as well as following up on a partial license plate number that was reported as “4CM.” The driver was reportedly wearing a teal-colored t-shirt and a camouflage-patterned hat. He was alone in the truck.

Several Manteca police officers closed in on the restaurant less than 10 minutes after the robbery was reported – one of which was carrying an assault rifle as he made his way across the blacktop and in-front of where the suspect’s vehicle had just sped away from.

Several trees – spaced out the length of the median strip – provide a natural barrier that would typically prevent vehicles from being able to cross over. The alleged stick-up man managed to pass between a section that contained no trees and no piping, despite having a truck that appeared to be lowered in nature.
