According to police reports, two men wearing hooded sweaters entered Taco Bell and demanded money from the cashier at gunpoint.

Two men and a minor fled by vehicle with an undisclosed sum of money.

Shortly after the robbery, the suspects’ car was spotted repeatedly driving around the restaurant by Taco Bell employees and a description of the vehicle was given to police.

The trio was arrested later that night after being pulled over by police for a broken headlight.

Officers arrested Jeremy Carter, 22, and Johnny Calhoun, 21, along with a minor.

The three are currently being held without bond in the Dallas County Jail pending a bond hearing. A Taco Bell manager said Thursday that employees were nervous, but no one had quit, so &8220;everyone’s making out alright.&8221;
