Employee jailed for fake fast food robbery

An employee at a fast food restaurant in Perth who helped stage an armed robbery with a friend has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison.

The Beldon eatery employee Patrick Egan conspired with his friend Kyle Cox last April to stage a robbery that saw them get away with $5104.

On the night of the crime, Egan texted Cox who entered the store through the back and held a knife against his friend under the guise of taking him hostage, forcing the store manager to hand over the cash.

The WA Supreme Court heard the pair had different versions of events, with both pointing the finger of blame at each other, claiming it was the other who had a drug debt they wanted to settle.

Egan has since written a letter of apology to the store.
