An armed suspect with a loaded gun stole a cash drawer from a Connecticut McDonald's by reaching into the drive-thru window and grabbing the drawer.

The incident took place around 12:30 a.m., Monday, Jan. 25 at the McDonald's on Route 75 in Windsor Locks, said police.

According to police, a vehicle was at the drive-through window when a person walked between the car and the window.
