Some fast food workers in Lexington were forced into a freezer during a robbery. 

That's according to employees at the McDonald's on Leestown Road who say they were getting some food ready around 1:30 when they heard a bang at the second drive through window. 

One of them went to find out what caused it and says he saw a man with a rag over his face climbing into the building.

The workers say the man forced two of them into the freezer at gunpoint, then took another to the cash register where he got up to $15, 000.

That employee says the man forced her into the same freezer and told her not to come out for five minutes.

Police say they tried to find the man using dogs, but were unsuccessful.
