Don't you hate when you misplace your car keys?

Especially when you just robbed a fast-food joint, and you need to start that getaway vehicle?

Nathan Heredia Perez and his brother know exactly how it feels, cops say.


The 19-year-old Guadalupe resident has a "serious cocaine habit," he later told police as an explanation for his motive for the crime. He recruited his minor brother to help him carry out a plan to rob the Burger King at 709 East Broadway Road in Phoenix, records show.

Perez and his brother, who wasn't named in the booking sheet, borrowed a rifle, a BB gun and a car from one of their buddies. On Saturday evening, they parked the car behind the eatery and put bandannas over their faces.

With his brother acting as lookout at the inside-front of the store, the masked Perez entered the Burger King, brandishing a gun as he commanded the employees to move to the back of the restaurant. This was the scarier, lengthier sort of armed robbery, clearly. After cleaning out the registers, Perez forced an employee to open a safe, cops say. The brothers ran out the back door with about $700.

But one of them had misplaced the car keys, records show. Whoops.

Perez sent his younger brother back inside the Burger King to look for the keys, but he couldn't find them. So they went to Plan B, except they didn't actually have a Plan B. The pair ran, discarding clothing as they went in an attempt to hide their appearance. As police began swarming the area, the brothers found a nearby shed and ducked inside. That's where police found them just after 9 p.m.

In their panicked, car-less escape, they also left the money in a backpack found at the scene.

Police want Perez charged with armed robbery and kidnapping. His brother was apparently turned over to juvenile authorities.

What comes around goes around.  I wonder how many other robberies they did before they finally got caught?  Are they two people who you would like to get a pathway to citizenship?

I'd sure like to hear a quote from the buddy whose car and guns are now police property.  Do you suppose he's taking it well?
