PHILADELPHIA - August 19, 2011 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police have identified the man wanted for hold-ups at two local fast food restaurants.
Action News has learned that police issued an arrest warrant for Jerome Edwards on Friday morning.
Police released surveillance video on Thursday allegedly showing Edwards breaking into the drive-thru window of a McDonald's in East Mount Airy early that morning.
