My daughter was very lucky Wednesday. She walked in on a robbery where she works. Should have never happened.
Asst. Manager needed a smoke break. Supposed to go out the front and walk a round. He went out the back and turned the alarm off ???, and left the door cracked open. He then walked down the alley a ways. 4 ScumBags/BGs
pull up in a car..between him and the door. They get out and ask for money. He says No and they proceed to beat the crap out of him. They drag him in the store and go to the managers office.
This is a cell phone store, so no one up front even knows anything is happening.
The managers office has cameras in it. So everything was recorded. The BGs have a gun and put it to the manager's head. He opens the safe and lets them have what they want...... That is when the SBs notice the cameras and proceed to pick up computer monitor... and throw it on the floor a few times ?? I guess they thought they were breaking to recorder.
My daughter hearing the noise opens the door and asks "What is going on?"
The guy with the gun is only a few feet in the door and points the .45 at her and screams something at her. She cannot remember anything except the gun....that is all she noticed. The guy lunges at her and grabs her arm.She spins away and takes off.
Her manager screams at the guy"Don't shoot she's pregnent" (yeah, found out the day before I am going to be a GrandDaddy).....The guy does not shoot. Thank God.
Anyway, she runs on to sales floor, hits alarm, warns everyone in store and runs next door to call police.
Turns out they robbed 2 places before them...firing shots in one of them. Left their store and went to rob another store when the Leo's caught up with them. 4 guys, just got out on parole, according to Leo's.
Whew, this tough to write.
God was looking out for my little girl. She was real lucky.
Well that makes the most incredible story I've heard all day.
Thank God she's ok and congratulations.. She had an angel looking out for here.
About these scumbags getting out on parole and going on a robbery spree... They were on the streets instead of 'on the farm' workin' on the chain gang. We've got a screeeeewed up justice system in this country with over-crouded prisons and all that free labor and strong backs obviously bored that could be put to good use as they should for the taxpayers. I even heard in some states if you work the prisoners you have to pay them.
Voting counts, or it used to anyway.. And political correctness is a term that's time has passed. Time to get old-school to save this nation.
Oh, I've read there have been a couple of home invasions in Houston in
the last few days. The reports said one was successful when the bad guys
got away and one was not when the home owner used a firearm for
Good luck! I hope it doesn't happen to you or anyone you know!
