A fast crook committed a fast food crime.

And while this one was over quickly, it could have ended tragically because there was a gun involved.

Hopefully you can help us solve this one quickly in Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

When a man, seen on surveillance video wearing an orange Tennessee Vols cap, walked into the Hardees in Meridianville January 4, he was about to place an order that wasn't on the menu.

Call it a quick cash combo.

You see him walk out a few seconds later.

What you don't see, according to the Madison County Sheriff's Department, is this guy pulling out a gun pointing it at the drive-through clerk, and ordering them to empty the cash register.

Investigators describe him as around 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds.

Again, he was wearing a Vols cap. And we're asking you to Volunteer your information, if you can help us identify him.

here's a big wad of cash waiting for you if you do.

Up to a $1,000 reward. Just make the anonymous call to 256-53-Crime.
