Police are looking for two men who they said robbed a Taco Bell in Cromwell Monday morning with a machete and a crowbar and forced the employees to open the safe and empty their own pockets of valuables.
Police responded to reports of a robbery at Taco Bell on Shunpike Road at 2:36 a.m. after a man with a machete and another who had a crowbar went in through an unlocked door and had the employees empty a safe, then empty their pockets of valuables, according to police.
After that, the robbers led the employees out of the back and had them wait outside while they fled with money, police said.
