Cash Register or Adding Machine?
FAIRFIELD - It's a theft that just doesn't add up.
A man who tried to steal cash from the Dunkin' Donuts outlet on the Post Road on Monday night fled with an adding machine that he apparently mistook for a cash register.
Police said the unidentified man walked into the doughnut shop about 10:28 p.m. and handed a clerk a note stating that he had a gun and a bomb. The man's note said he would use both if he didn't get cash, police said.
The man then grabbed an adding machine, which had no cash drawers, from the counter and ran from the shop.
The thief fled in a black car, possibly a Pontiac, police said.
