FERRIS – The Ferris Police Department is investigating a robbery that occurred Sunday at the Dairy Queen, located at 308 Interstate 45.

The public is asked to contact the department with any information it can provide about the incident, which occurred at about 10 p.m., near closing, when two suspects entered the restaurant.

“At the time, two employees were on duty. Each suspect grabbed an employee by the arm and then led them to the back. They demanded money from the safe from the manager. One employee was kept at the back while the other was led to the back to empty the register,” Ferris Police Department investigator Sgt. Sam Love said.

“Then both employees were placed in the walk-in storage unit,” Love said. “They remained in the freezer for about three minutes until they were sure the suspects had left.”

Love said the first suspect is described as a white male about 6 feet tall. The second suspect is described as a black male who also was tall. Both individuals wore masks, long-sleeve coats and gloves. The suspects left the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of money; a vehicle description was not available.

Love said police recovered video surveillance of the robbery and hopes to release still photos out to the public.

Anyone with information about the robbery can contact Love at the Ferris Police Department at 972-544-2225.
