Tue., June 1, 2010, 5:24 p.m.

Spokane police today found the Mitsubishi Lancer stolen at gunpoint during a dispute over loud music in fast food drive-through.

But the men who stole it still are at large. They are described as large, white and bald.

They were waiting at McDonald’s, 909 W. Indiana Ave., in a white, four-door sedan at 2:58 a.m. Monday when the Mitsubishi occupied by two other men pulled in behind playing loud music, police said.

When one of the men yelled to turn the music down, the men in the Mitsubishi got out of the car and confronted them but retreated when one displayed a handgun, according to police.

The men ordered the victims out of the car before driving off – one in the car they arrived in and one in the victim’s vehicle.

The Mitsubishi was found about 1:30 p.m. today in a vacant lot in the area of 1800 West Boone. Its stereo was stolen. Major crimes detectives are combing it for evidence. Anyone with information should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
