Flomaton Police: Man Burglarized Hardee’s, Other Businesses

July 14, 2019

A local man has been charged with the Friday burglary of the Hardee’s restaurant in Flomaton, and police say he will be charged with additional burglaries.

Andreas Payne, 26, was taken into custody less than three hours after the burglary and booked into the Escambia County Detention Center in Bretwon.

Early Friday morning, the Flomaton Police Department responded to the Hardee’s at Highway 31 and Sidney Manning Boulevard. They discovered the drive-thru window had been opened and the safe had been looted.

Flomaton Police said Payne was developed as a suspect and later confessed to the Hardee’s burglary. He is also the suspect in three other burglaries, including the burglary of Len’s Jewelers, according to police.

An employee at Hardee’s is also under investigation for involvement in the restaurant burglary, police said.
