Three men this time. One with shotgun. Three customers pistol-whipped. One customer shot at (but not hit).

These guys are desperate and can kill, and they are not stupid.

Tis the season to be jolly...

Armed robberies always go up before Christmas time. Where I work, were getting 3-4 a day. Just caught 3 guys all armed; one with Cobray, one with a Uzi, and the third had a Glock.

Best part is, when we caught them, one guy defacated in his pants and one urinated in his pants. I love it when a good plan comes together.

You should have a seperate cashier for robberies! Either that or a couple mean, heavily armed employees behind the counter. But I guess that's frowned on in our society.

I think maybe tetley is in LE. Either that or he has great life insurance.

Robberies like that are common in Houston. Check the HPD crime stats for the # of armed robberies in the past year. The news media has a tendency to report crimes against more affulent people than in poorer areas.

The criminals will usually hit businesses that will have employees/customers that will least likely to fight back. Every heard of a sole propritership getting robbed lately?

I worked as an assistant manager of a Pizza Hut while in college. In my training, they made us aware statistics that show that fast food restaurants (and restaurants in general) are more likely are to be held up than more traditional targets (Like convenience stores.)
We were told a few reasons for this: One is that fast food restaurants still deal mostly with cash, thereby insuring more in the till. Additionally, very few restaurants have timed lock safes. These two factors ensure more money that can be taken in a robbery. Another factor mentioned by Kenneth earlier, is that disgruntled, poorly paid, and poorly treated employees don’t try too hard to resist.

Another interesting statistic that we learned was that the majority of restaurant holdups have at least one current or former employee as a perpetrator!
