Kansas Teens Rob Woman As She Lay Dying In Taco Bell Drive-Thru

| by

Cops arrested two Wichita, Kan., teens who are accused of stealing a woman’s wedding ring and other items as she lay dying at a Taco Bell drive-thru.

Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen, both 19, were arrested on Friday. Both teens had been charged and convicted of burglary in the past.

The thieves allegedly stole 43-year-old Danielle Zimmerman’s wedding ring, purse, iPhone and cash as she suffered an aneurysm on Dec. 29.

Zimmerman had gone up to pick up dinner for her husband of 21 years, Kris Zimmerman and their two children, Noah, 13, and Alex, 18.

She suffered the fatal injury around 8 p.m., crashed into the drive-thru’s speaker box and was unconscious when discovered. That’s when Johnson and Thomas-Hameen committed their crime.

“They can’t believe that somebody would do that… a crime like that to somebody in her condition,” Zimmerman’s husband Kris said about his sons. “It’s kind of a cruel wake-up call for them.”

Zimmerman was taken to the hospital, but passed away the next day. Her organs were donated.

“I knew that she wanted that,” Kris said. “Through this tragedy, maybe she can help somebody else’s life.”

Kris Zimmerman found his wife and realized her wedding ring, several of her credit cards, $150 in cash and an iPhone were missing.

Johnson is held on suspicion of robbery, criminal possession of a firearm and a probation violation and is in custody in lieu of a $315,000 bond. Thomas-Hameen faces charges of robbery and various traffic violations and is being held in lieu of a $200,500 bond.

Both men were convicted of burglary last year. Johnson was convicted of aggravated sexual battery and misdemeanor theft in 2012.

Cops are still looking for another 19-year-old suspect in the robbery.
