Last week police arrested a juvenile and charged him with several crimes including first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and criminal use of a firearm. Police also charged the McDonald’s store manager that reportedly conspired in the armed robbery.
According to state police, shortly after midnight on Sept. 2 two armed men entered the rear door of the Southbury McDonald’s, 100 Main St. North, in Southbury, and ordered two female and one male employee to the ground while the other male employee was ordered to empty the safe. The suspects then fled with approximately $5,000 in cash, police said.
The two suspects were reportedly armed with a gun, knife, and baseball bat.
With the arrest of DiLeo, all involved parties in this case have been arrested, according to State Police. DiLeo is being held on a $250,000 court-set bond and is scheduled to appear in Waterbury Superior Court Thursday.
