FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - Florence Police are tracking down leads in the Sonic restaurant robbery which happened early Monday morning.  However investigators say they need more information to help crack the case.

Surveillance pictures show a Sonic restaurant clerk on her knees complying with the demands of a robber while he points a shotgun toward her face.

According to Florence Police investigators, the robber made his move as employees were closing up shop for the night.

Detectives say a worker was taking out the trash, when the robber forced the clerk back inside and demanded cash.

As Florence Police collected evidence after the robbery at Sonic, investigators found items behind the business they believe may have been used during the hold up.

Detectives are using those clues to track down leads and at this time police believe the robber may have had a getaway car waiting nearby.

This week’s Shoals Area Most Wanted comes from the Russellville Police Department.

First, police want Juan "Steven" Martinez behind bars.  Martinez is accused of rape.

Next a Franklin County grand jury handed down an indictment on Kirnes McCarley for 11 counts of attempt to commit a controlled substance crime.

Finally, detectives want Patrick Vaughn behind bars for receiving stolen property.

If you have any information about where the most wanted may be hiding out, or have any clues about the Sonic robbery, leave an anonymous tip on the Shoals Area Crime Stoppers tipline.  That number is 256-386-8685.  If the information you leave leads to an arrest, it could be worth a cash reward.
