A serial armed robber’s story ended when a KFC crew member and a McDonald’s manager, respectively, stood up to him and took him down Saturday afternoon, Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

Before 52-year-old Pedro Alvarado’s bad Saturday, BSO detectives believe, he’d hit the Lauderdale Lakes Payless ShoeSource at 3981 W. Oakland Park Blvd. on Feb. 24, Oct. 8 and Oct. 24; a McDonald’s in Oakland Park on March 3 and May 31; and, Oct. 30, Fallas Department Store, 3201 N. State Rd. 7 in Lauderdale Lakes.

BSO said he walked into the KFC at 3298 N. State Rd. 7, across the street from the strip mall with the Fallas, Saturday and ordered a soda.

“When the cashier opened the register, Alvarado insinuated he had a gun and demanded she hand over the money,” BSO said.

Yet, she resisted. And Alvarado left without the money and his soda.

BSO says Alvarado went a mile away to the McDonald’s at 5510 Oakland Park Blvd. That robbery attempt got unplugged by the store manager, who handed Alvarado over to Lauderhill cops after a short scuffle.

Alvarado did five and a half years in Florida prison from 2007 to 2013 on robbery and aggravated battery charges.
