    I honestly can’t believe some one is dumb enough to rob the only kfc on the island, about 500 metres from the police station and courts

    • So much for dark tinted halmets.

    • BobTheBuilder says:

      Omg 500 meters!!! (thinks about it)… Actually that’s more than enough distance. Thought u said 50 meters at first.(wipes sarcasm off keyboard)(i.e. The police station is on court st.)

      Omg Did they say he had a hoodie on. Geesh that’s another thing they’ll be saying we cant wear.

    • Hurricane says:

      I can’t believe that someone is so dumb to make such a statement.

      I also can’t believe that KFC continue to leave that back door open the way they do.

  2. Realize & Legalize says:

    McDonald’s already left us…don’t make KFC leave us too… #SaveColonelSanders

    • yess says:

      KFC and McDonalds… Umm Chick-Fil-A and Dominos would be better lol

      • Educated says:

        Papa John’s over Dominos

      • aceboy says:

        yes, chick-fil-a, anti gay, overly religious fast food…perfect for bigoted bermuda.

  3. swing voter says:

    hummmmm circumstance seem questionable.

  4. Triangle Drifter says:

    Did he take fries with that?

  5. pjs says:

    Leaving a back door open sounds like a possible inside job.

  6. Teach your children right from wrong says:

    Possible inside job or ex employee because who the hell knows where kfcs back door is?

    • Boo boo snugglepuff says:

      Back door is where deliveries go through. So I’m gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that most of the delivery truck drivers and staff know about that back door

    • Dugong says:

      Where the hell even is the back of KFC?

  7. Zinger lover says:

    I woulda took a few zingers also

  8. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    If he’s caught is there any suggestions as to what would be a suitable punishment…? Should we whip the thief at a cost of $25 or incarcerate them for $80,000 per annum…??

  9. beam me up sparky says:

    That must be the fastest anybody has ever got in and out of KFC.

  10. Coffee says:

    Can’t wait for the picture of D&B consoling the distraught employee . Meanwhile be on the lookout for someone spending greasy money .

  11. Oh,I see now says:

    Send him to jail but legislation in reference to housing prisoners need to be changed so that family members foot part of the bill or cut back on non essentials all together.

  12. D says:

    That is really BOLD to rob KFC smh i hope they catch him

    • Gary says:

      This happened shortly after closing hours, a vacant parking lot away from the eye of the public eye made a good observa tion opportunity and escape route. Are there security proc-edures in place for staff arriving and leaving ? Are there any foot patrols by police in the area of city hall, bus terminal, church and queen st sections who take time to talk with busine ss about minimizing these possibilities ? No matter how careful a person is, the risks are there. I hope all affected make a good recovery.

  13. somuchless says:

    I’m surprised he didn’t slip on the greasy chicken haha

  14. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      lmfao….sure you will.

    • aceboy says:

      Takbir Karriem Sharrieff, only an idiot like you would make threats, in writing, using their real name.

    • Security Boss says:

      Be careful not to over extend yourself. Remember, your not in that great a physical shape anymore

  15. Randy dandy says:

    Well Dave I don’t think he is that dumb I mean …….he did get away!!!

  16. Wally Sittur says:

    The culprit was apprehended just a few hours later when he returned to the scene of the crime because they forgot his Sweet n Sour sauce.

    • Cup Of Tea Anyone? says:

      hope he got a roun de world to wash it down

      although tea is much healthier than soda.
