Three young Waitara men with the munchies abducted a security
van driver and forced him to drive them to McDonald's for a
feed, police say.
One News reported the men approached the 20-year-old driver
of the Armourguard van on High Street West in Waitara at 1am
yesterday demanding he drive them to McDonalds Family
Restaurant in New Plymouth for a feed and take them home
A police spokesman from New Plymouth police said the driver
did what he was told.
No weapons were used and no money was stolen.
It is unclear what the three ordered nor whether McDonalds'
staff had any idea what was happening.
After dropping off the three men, the shaken driver headed
back to New Plymouth, detouring into the Z Energy service
station at Waiwhakaiho to alert police of his hour-long
ordeal, One News reported.
