A York City woman accused of robbing a Burger King at the drive-through window earlier this month was nabbed after calling the restaurant to see if officers were on her trail, according to police.
Tyechia Lorraine Rembert, 33, of 140 S. Penn St., is now charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, simple assault, reckless endangerment and making terroristic threats. She was not in county prison on Thursday morning.
Northern York County Regional Police said that shortly before 8 a.m. Nov. 11, Rembert ordered breakfast at the drive-through of the Burger King at 490 Loucks Road. When she pulled up to the window, she pretended to have a handgun and demanded money, police said.
Investigators were able to track her down using cell phone records because after the robbery Rembert called the Burger King to find out if any witnesses saw her license-plate number, according to police.
Rembert confessed to the robbery and told officers she did it to pay bills, police said. She told them she hid a crow bar in her jacket sleeve to make it look as if she had a gun.
