LUBBOCK, Texas -- Lubbock Police are searching for a man who held up a local Pizza Hut with a fake bomb on Jan. 12.

According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, the employee who was robbed called police to tell them he was holding a device that a robber claimed was a bomb.

A bomb-sniffing dog was sent to the scene and police determined the device was a fake.

The employee was working alone in the restaurant when he walked to a back storage room. Some time after 10:30 p.m., the robber entered through the rear door and confronted the employee.

According to a police spokesman, the robber placed a small gray device with a flashing red light in the employee's hand and told him it would explode if he ran outside.

The thief then told the employee to put the store's money in a pizza delivery bag and then left through the rear door.

It is not known how much cash was stolen.
