If I was a criminal, I would do my robbing any time there was a big sporting event, because I would assume a lot of the cops were closer to the stadium, so that would enhance my chances of a smooth getaway. Manning owns several Papa John’s restaurants in Denver, but one is a few dollars short this morning. Police tell us the caper went down around 7:30 PM — right in the middle of Peyton and the Broncos’ big game — at the PJ’s near the University of Denver. We’re told two masked suspects with guns walked in to the store and demanded employees hand over the money from the register … got the loot, and then made a clean getaway. No one was injured during the robbery, and it’s unclear at this point how much cash the crooks got. Police believe the suspects are guys in their 20s — and say their description matches several other robberies in the area last night. Looks like the thieves were using my train of thought.
