Suspect arrested for threatening, robbing employees at Tampa Burger King

The Tampa Police Department arrested a suspect who was caught on surveillance cameras threatening fast food workers on Friday evening.

Shortly after 5:30 PM on November 18, 2022, an adult male entered the Burger King located at 611 S Dale Mary Highwaydemanding free food from the employees. The employees refused, leading the suspect to remove a pair of pliers from his pocket and begin to threaten the employees. The suspect banged
the pliers on the counter, knocking over one of the cash registers, before jumping the service counter where he continued making threats.

In fear, a restaurant manager discreetly notified a citizen in the drive through lane with her radio headset that they were in danger and to call 911. The manager was forced to give the suspect food.

Tampa Police quickly arrived at the scene, locating the suspect, later identified as Hubert Credit Jr., 50, eating his food in the men’s bathroom. After being given commands to exit the stall, Credit complied and was taken into custody for robbery with a deadly weapon. No employees or officers were injured during the incident.
