This man's name is Kelvin Barnes, and he is still on the run. Do you know him?
A surveillance video from a Wendy's in Tampa, Florida, captured an incident on August 2, where a customer squeezed through their drive-thru window, began tossing items at workers, and tried to get the cash drawer. He was unsuccessful, however, as employees rushed the window and stopped him.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office shared the video via their Facebook, identifying the suspect as Kelvin Barnes, a 26-year-old man. However, the car he was driving is a rental and has not been returned to the rental company. He has a Georgia driver's license, but no known local address.
In the video, viewers can see that there are other young men accompanying Barnes in the car, witnessing the incident. One of them seems to be pushing Barnes away from the window, especially when the Wendy's employees begin shouting at him.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office released a statement on their Facebook: “A Wendy’s employee told deputies Barnes and his unidentified passengers became belligerent while placing their order and got out of their car. This surveillance video shows Barnes reaching in the Wendy's window to throw things and grab the cash drawer. Barnes ended up dropping the cash drawer and leaving in a gray 2020 Nissan Maxima with a Tennessee plate.”

Fox 13 reports that the Wendy's employees did not understand why Barnes had suddenly acted belligerently all of a sudden while he was ordering.
At the moment, authorites are still on the lookout for him.
"DO YOU KNOW WHERE BARNES IS?" the sheriff's office asks on the Facebook post. "Barnes is facing burglary, criminal mischief, and petit theft charges! Call HCSO if you have any information on his whereabouts 813-247-8200."
