Police are searching for a man who allegedly stole wads of cash from a fried chicken spot and its employee in Williamsburg on Sunday.
The man went up to a 32-year-old male employee at Chicken Express, located at 582 Broadway, at around 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 12 and demanded money while faking that he had a gun under his shirt, police say.
The worker complied and the suspect took $80 from the cash register, $150 from an unsecured lock box and $180 from the employee’s wallet, netting a total of $410, according to police.
The thief fled on foot westbound on Broadway.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
