Checkers Robber Hides in Freezer Before Cops Arrive

Yesterday morning, a would-be thief tried to rob a Miami area Checkers. Instead, he received a "chilly" reception from employees...and police.

According to Miami police, at around 6 a.m. on November 4, employees were preparing to open the restaurant, located at 450 NW 42nd Ave. for business, when they heard a window shattering. They then found Anthony Michael Demore demanding money from the broken window opening.

The restaurant workers then ran to the other side of the restaurant and called police.

Instead of fleeing, Demore proceeded to the drive-thru window, broke through with a concrete paver, and entered the restaurant. As the employees escaped the building, Demore looked around and decided to wait for police in the freezer, where he was arrested and taken to the "cooler".
