Suffolk County police are investigating the armed robbery of a Burger King in Farmingville that took place Wednesday morning.
There were no reported injuries, police said.
The robbery happened when a man entered the North Ocean Avenue Burger King at about 10:45 a.m., displayed a handgun and demanded cash from an employee at the register, Suffolk Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers said.

The suspect was described as thin and approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall, Meyers said. He was wearing a gray hooded-sweatshirt and tan cargo shorts.
Meyers said Aviation and Canine Section officers responded and the investigation is continuing.
