Police plea after armed man steals McDonald's monopoly cards

In the footage a hooded figure approaches the counter of one of the fast-food restaurants and grabs a box.

A hooded man with a knife stormed into a McDonald's in London and stole a box of Monopoly vouchers.

He then lifts up the counter that separates the employees from the dining area, grabs the Monopoly box, and threatens a worker with the weapon before fleeing the store.

This is the moment an armed robber stormed into McDonald's and stole a box of promotional Monopoly cards. The incident occurred at the McDonald's in Hayes, West London, on March 23 at approximately 2 p.m.

Police have released the footage in a bid to trace the suspect following the robbery on Coldharbour Lane on March 23.


Authorities said the preparator was "a black man, dressed in a dark and grey two-tone hooded top, white gloves, black pants and black shoes".

The annual McDonalds promotion sees customers handed vouchers attached to their meal boxes which could contain prizes worth up to £100,000.

Detective Constable Emma Brookes, of Hillingdon CID, said: 'We are appealing for anyone who may know who was involved in this robbery. Instant prizes include free fries, ice creams, cheese burgers, hash browns and other items on the McDonald's menu.

The Monopoly vouchers are part of a prize-giving scheme the restaurant is running, where customers can exchange stickers for prizes, such as Mini Cooper cars and cash rewards totaling more than $130,000.
