Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies are searching for at least three women, armed with an AK-47, who robbed the Pizza Hut on Forestdale Boulevard over the weekend.
Deputies were dispatched to the restaurant about 10:20 p.m. Friday. Employees told lawmen the women, believed to be in their late teens or early 20s, went into the store and ordered the manager to open two cash registers. One of them took money from one register and took the entire drawer and money from the other, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian.
While searching for the trio, deputies found a trail of money that started from behind the business and led to the rear of an office building on Sandyview Lane and U.S 78. Witnesses told them they saw a female running down the alley next to Pizza Hut. That woman, they said, got into a red Saturn with a black car protector, fleeing at a high rate of speed.
Christian gave this description of the suspects: three short black females in their late teens or early 20s, wearing black clothing, hats and sunglasses. One had on khaki colored pants; two were wearing blue bandannas.
