AURORA, Mo. (KY3) - The Aurora Police Department arrested suspects wanted for an armed robbery at the McDonald’s on Tuesday night.

Police made the arrests Wednesday evening. Police say they have uncovered evidence, including the firearm, linking the suspects to the crime.

Police say two people wearing masks held up the McDonald’s on South Elliott at approximately 10 p.m. One of the robbers pulled out a gun and demanded money. The robbers left the store on foot with cash. No one was hurt.

Those working near the restaurant say they aren’t surprised.

“Of course, in bigger cities, there’s a lot of crime,” Rhonda Brantley, who owns a coffee shop in town, says. “But around here, since it’s so small, you hear more of it, and it’s more widespread. So Aurora does have a lot of crime. I mean, we deal with this day in and day out.”
