MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Martinsburg Police Department is seeking information on a man who allegedly took money from two Burger King restaurants in Berkeley County.

A man posing as a representative of a register company entered Burger King on Viking Way in Martinsburg on Friday and spoke with employees, according to a police department news release.

The man presented an identification card and said he needed to perform an update on the cash registers, police said. The man was permitted behind the counter, where he opened and closed several registers at the restaurant. A short time later, the man exited the business. 

After the man left, employees determined that an undisclosed amount of money had been taken from the cash registers, police said. Employees were able to view video surveillance that confirmed their suspicions, police said.

After leaving the first Burger King, the man went to Burger King in the Spring Mills area, where the same scam allegedly was conducted, police said. 

Anyone with information on the incidents may call the Martinsburg Police Department at 304-264-2100.
