DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

A man who robbed a Des Moines area fast food restaurant had an unusual getaway car.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says a man entered a Wendy's Restaurant just before 5 p.m. Sunday. He told an employee he had a weapon and demanded money.

He was given an undisclosed amount of cash, and then fled across a parking lot of an adjacent building.

He got into a maroon Ford Ranger pickup pulling a large trailer that contained furniture, covered by a dark tarp.

Witnesses say the trailer had blue, out of state license plates.
