FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Four out of five people arrested in connection with two recent burglaries at a Flagstaff McDonald's worked at the restaurant, authorities said.

Police said they suspected the crew was familiar with the layout based on the thief's easy access to the safe.

According to police reports, on Jan. 25 a masked man threw a rock through a glass door after closing hours, covered the video surveillance camera, opened the safe without having to force it, and grabbed approximately $2,400 in cash and coin and left.

''At that point, we felt it was an inside job,'' said Flagstaff Detective Joe Connell.
