Valdosta - Fast food employees are brushing up on their safety tips.

"We work with all our employees to make sure they are aware of what's going on around them, teach them to watch what's going on in the restaurant," says KFC owner Tim Harris.

As police search for several men responsible for robbing three restaurants, three days in a row.

It started with Sonic on Monday, Taco Bell on Tuesday and Hardees on Wednesday.

All three hit up by masked gunmen. While the Taco Bell robbery seems to be a coincidence, police say the Sonic and Hardees could be linked since the descriptions of the two robbers involved are very similar.

"When there's similarities in robberies or crimes such as this we look at the similarities and we see if we can draw conclusions if these are related but at this point we don't know that but we are looking at the possibility," says Lt. Bobbi McGraw of the Valdosta Police.

As police continue their search, employees will continue their extra safety precautions.

"Make sure everyone comes in at the same time, leaves at the same time and occasionally we do call police to escort us out of the restaurant," Harris says.

Until the masked bandits are behind bars.

Valdosta Police are asking anyone with any information to call their crime tip line. That number is 229-293-3091.
