Have you seen this burrito lover?

St. Louis police are on the hunt for a Taco Bell customer who held up the store after finishing his breakfast.

After 7 a.m. on August 15, the suspect bought food at the Taco Bell at 1324 Hampton Avenue, just north of Manchester Avenue, police said. Once he was done, he reapproached the counter, pulled out a gun and demanded money.

An employee handed the money over, and the robber fled east across the parking lot.

No one was injured during the robbery.

Yeah! Like Chick-Fil-A. That way, at least no gay people with any self respect at all would be hurt in the cross fire!

Looks like one of those Eastern European immigrants now prevalent on the south side, he wasn't robbing them, he was just aggressively haggling like those people like to do. Nish nosh, nish nosh...

Would it please you to know that I wouldn't really care if he was gunned down? I'll go further and even say it's too bad a black cop wasn't there to confront him and blow him away if he played some funny games instead of stopping. Fuck thieves, especially this guy, he looks like one of those Russian movie mobsters. Shady.
