A search is underway for some suspects who got away with almost $30 in items from an Odessa business.

The Ector County Sheriff's Office said the suspect ordered the items at the Star's Drive Inn located in the 9000 block of West University on Monday evening.

According to the report, a passenger used a gift card to pay for the items and the card was declined.

That's when the employee saw the vehicle backing out of the parking lot trying to leave.

Authorities say the employee ran back outside and stood in front of the vehicle to prevent them from leaving but the vehicle backed up and hit another vehicle behind them.

Deputies say the employee again stood in front of the vehicle but the vehicle hit the employee in the right leg and fled the scene.

No descriptions of the suspects were available but surveillance video is being reviewed.

An investigation into the robbery is ongoing.
