By DUSTIN RACIOPPI just_in1

Tinton Falls police are searching for a suspect they say robbed the McDonald’s on Shrewsbury Avenue late Tuesday afternoon.

The male suspect, of whom police didn’t have a full description, entered the fast food chain at about 5:57p, placed an order — then reached over the counter and took money from the register, said Lieutenant David Scrivanic

The man fled on foot with an amount of cash “in excess of $250,” he said.

Police searched the area with a k-9 unit, but were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Tinton Falls Detective Sergeant Scott Trocchia at 732-542-4422, extension 442.
