Maybe they just wanted a little extra pepperoni.

Pizza Hut restaurants in the South have been hit by recent robberies, with incidents occurring in both Kentucky and North Carolina. A Louisville Pizza Hut branch was raided on Sept. 11 and, according to local media outlet WDRB, the caper wasn't a hard one to crack.

Thirty-four year old Donnie Lee Harris was the only worker on site with access to the safe at the time when $2,600 was lifted. Three days after the cash vanished, he was questioned by police. He fessed up to the robbery.
