ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Authorities are investigating a possible case of embezzlement and burglary at a Roanoke County Taco Bell.

According to a search warrant, on October 25 a Chevy Camaro was caught on the Burger in the Square restaurant's surveillance camera at 4 a.m. pulling into the parking lot of the Taco Bell on the 33 hundred block of Westmoreland Drive across the street from the Cave Spring Corners shopping center.

The video shows a tall thin man getting out of the car and going into the Taco Bell.

Surveillance video from Taco Bell then shows the man opening the safe and removing money. The search warrant notes forced entry to Taco Bell was not used.

Investigators found a manager of that Taco Bell and his car match the description of the man and car in the surveillance videos.

The manager has a key to the restaurant and combination to the safe.

The search warrant submitted to the Roanoke County Clerk of Court's office on October 30 is for the possible suspect's home on Garst Mill Road and his 1992 Red Chevy Camero.

Items searched include a green hometown bank bag, three Walmart gift cards ($25 each), and large amounts of currency, up to $2,500.
