Police says the suspect entered a Rally's in Henderson shortly before 7am Monday and confronted a manager, who was the only person in the closed restaurant at the time. Police say the suspect stole more than $500 and escaped in a gray van driven by another man. The crime was captured by a security camera. According to WFIE, Rally's is offering a $5,000 reward for tips that lead to an arrest and conviction of the man in the bottle. (More robbery stories.)
