MERIDIAN — Two men are being sought by authorities of the Meridian Police Department after an armed robbery was reported at a local fast food restaurant Wednesday night.

    Lt. Dean Harper with the MPD said Thursday the two men burst into the Subway restaurant on Highway 39 around 9:30 p.m. He said the female employee inside the restaurant ran into a bathroom and locked herself in when the two men came in. Harper said at least one of the men was armed.
