Chief Coatney reveals, “we recovered guns used in the crimes, ammo, stolen property including cash, clothing worn during the crimes, drugs, and other items considered evidence of their criminal activity.”

The two arrested might be responsible for the McDonald’s Armed Robbery, the Chief anticipates making more arrests related to other cases.

“When that happens, we will notify the community of their identities. All suspects will continue to be considered innocent until proven guilty,” he states.

“We want to express our appreciation for the help we have received from the community, business owners, and other law enforcement agencies that also had people fall victim to these crimes. The investigation work conducted by our patrol and investigators was complex, state of the art, and required a lot of technical work we are thankful to have access to. If it were not for the training, equipment, technology, and community contacts our staff have at their disposal, this case would have taken much longer to clear.

To the men and women of AMPD. This was investigative and tactical work every bit as effective and precise as one would expect from much larger agencies with more resources. We prepare for these things so we can attack them quickly and efficiently when/if they happen. I cannot express how proud I am to be part of this AMPD team. Absolutely remarkable police work, by the best people in the business. When you know you’re going in to handle people known to be armed and willing to use those firearms, and can handle the situation without anyone getting hurt, you have won a major victory in policing.”

McDonald's to offer healthcare workers free drinks once again

FOUR STATE AREA — If you’re a health care worker and find yourself in need of an ice-cold beverage this week – a popular fast-food restaurant has you covered.

All week – all McDonald’s locations in the Four State region are providing free large soft drinks and-or iced teas through their drive-thrus. Again – the promotion is only for health care workers. All they have to do is show their medical identification.

Alex Maffei, McDonald’s Owner & Operator, said, “Our employees just love being able to give back, because everybody in the community has been impacted by Covid, so it’s just one small way we can show our appreciation.”

This is the third time area McDonald’s have provided the free drinks to health care workers.
