CATHEDRAL CITY – A woman carrying a bright pink cosmetics bag and a teddy bear — and brandishing a rifle — reportedly held up a Cathedral City Carl’s Jr. drive-in and made off with cash, police said today.
The armed robbery was at about 6:40 a.m. Wednesday at the Carl’s Jr., 32250 Date Palm Drive. Police said a woman suspect armed with a rifle took an undisclosed amount of cash from the employees, then ran into the night.
