Couple Accused of McDonald’s Robbery in Custody

The couple that unsuccessfully robs safes together, stays together…until being carted off to separate prisons.

From oleantimesherald.com:

“WELLSVILLE — Two people accused of robbing the Wellsville McDonald’s restaurant have been apprehended after evading capture earlier this month.

Ryan W. Schrader, 32, of Wellsville, was charged with second-degree robbery, fourth-degree grand larceny, third-degree burglary and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, state police reported Wednesday. Rebecca L. Baker, 32, of Wellsville, was charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny.

On Aug. 11, the suspects allegedly entered through the back door of McDonald’s, one of them brandishing what appeared to be a pistol and demanding employees open the safe. They were unable to do so without having the combination, so the suspects allegedly took all the money they could — approximately $357 — and fled in a vehicle.

Further investigation allegedly showed the two were also responsible for a burglary at the Just One More bar in Shongo and the grand larceny of cash from Short’s Gas Station in Stannards. Schrader was also found in possession of a small amount of crack cocaine upon arrest, police allege.

In addition to the above allegations, both were charged by Wellsville Village Police with two counts of third-degree burglary, third-degree attempted burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny and petit larceny. According to police reports, those charges stem from multiple break-ins at a North Main Street establishment in Wellsville.

Schrader and Baker were arraigned in Wellsville Village Court. Schrader was remanded to Allegany County Jail in lieu of $50,000, while Baker was remanded in lieu of $20,000.”

McDonald’s Manager Punches Customer with Service Dog and Two Autistic Kids

Of all tables to punch, she chose the one full of disabled people…

From lifewithdogs.tv:

“A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a McDonald’s manager who punched a customer in the face for bringing a service dog into the restaurant.

Security footage shows off-duty manager Tiffany Denise Allen approaching customer and service dog owner Jennifer Schwenker, who was with her two autistic children in a Marietta, GA McDonald’s the time of the incident. Allen told Schwenker that she and her service dog were not welcome in the restaurant. When Schwenker pointed out that she had a legal right to bring the dog into the establishment Allen became enraged, eventually following Schwenker into the bathroom and berating her.

Jennifer Schwenker said she became concerned for her safety at that point and decided to leave the restaurant. She did, but she spilled a drink on the way out, enraging Allen. Allen followed her into the parking lot and punched her in the face before she could leave the property.

Cobb County officials have issued a warrant for Tiffany Denise Allen for battery, simple assault fear and disorderly conduct. Surveillance camera footage shows McDonald’s employees trying unsuccessfully to restrain their co-worker prior to the assault.”
