McDonald’s Manager Charged With Conspiring in Southbury Armed Robbery

Waterbury man arrested on several charges due to involvement in Sept. 2 armed robbery.

State Police arrested a Waterbury man in connection with an armed robbery at Southbury McDonald’s earlier this month.

According to state police, the McDonald’s store manager, Angel Medina, 21, of 228 Wood St. in Waterbury, conspired in the armed robbery and was arrested and charged with several counts Friday afternoon.

Angel Medina was charged with:

  • first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery
  • first-degree conspiracy to commit burglary
  • second-degree conspiracy to commit larceny
  • second-degree larceny
  • first-degree criminal liability for robbery
  • first-degree criminal liability for burglary

Yesterday police arrested a juvenile in connection to the Sept. 2 incident and charged him with several crimes including first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and criminal use of a firearm.

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.

Medina is being held on a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on September 24.

This investigation is still ongoing, state police said.

Working McDonald's...robbing McDonald's....these kids show zero ambition. I hope they will aim higher from now on. I wonder if they have thought 5 years ahead? Its not just a video game out there.

With all due respect "working McDonald's" does not show zero ambition. Robbing McDonald's is zero ambition. Sitting home, doing nothing, collecting a handout is zero ambition. There are certainly higher aspirations to be had. However, in this job market/economy, anyone who is willing to EARN a (very!) little money and is willing to be the brunt of someone's ill-advised point has more courage than those who feel justified to sit in judgement because they would never dream to stoop to work at McDonald's.
