Where’s the Beef? Robbery at Wendy’s doesn’t stack up

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 3 August, 2010

Atlanta police report that a man ripped off a Wendy’s drive-through for almost $600 late last Saturday night, but wasn’t happy with the amount and called up the restaurant to complain. Twice. “Next time there better be more than $586!”

Apparently the ski-masked and gun toting man walked up to the outside of the fast-food drive-through and demanded the cash drawer. The employee complied, and the robber grabbed the drawer and ran off. He discarded the drawer in the bushes and made off with the cash on foot.

Later that night after the robber had time to count the cash, he repeatedly called the restaurant in frustration to complain about the haul. The manager should have told him the drawer was now full again and he should come back… with the local authorities waiting for him. He obviously isn’t that bright, it might have worked.

Besides 586 bucks in a single cash register isn’t too bad. The managers are “supposed” to skim off excess money throughout the night and lock it in the safe. At least we did back when I worked in a fast food joint. There wasn’t supposed to be more than $150 in there. It’s not like someone is going to regularly roll up to the register and peel a $100 bill off a stack of cash to pay for a $5 value meal.

With the close proximity of fast-food restaurants always clumped together, he probably could have hit more than one and increased his nightly total. $586 at Wendy’s, $491 at McDonald’s, $611 at the Burger King, another $535 at the Dunkin Donuts… that would have been a decent night’s pull, and he wouldn’t have had to call back to complain…

Oh wait, hitting up the Dunkin Donut shop probably wouldn’t have been the best idea… that’s where all the cops hang out…

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Robber steals $6 from 11 people in California

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 11 March, 2010

Times are tough.

When the economy is as bad as it is, and many people are without jobs or having problems making ends meet, crime rates go up. As unemployment tops 20% in eight California counties… desperate people are resorting to desperate measures…

A woman armed with a gun in Thermal, California help up 11 people at La Chicanita Market this past Tuesday afternoon. You would think with those kind on numbers, she would get a decent amount of cash. However, this crime netted her and average of $0.55 per victim.

That’s right, a whole $6.00. Isn’t minimum wage like $7.25?

Police report the woman confronted one person who was entering the market and another 10 customers inside the store. Afterwards, the frustrated robber fled in an old car.

Nobody was hurt in this incident, except the robber who probably suffered from extreme disappointment.

In another low payout waste of a robbery attempt, a group of friends in Murfreesboro, TN faced a similar robbery. Different scenario, similar outcome.

Sometimes you just want to unwind and soak in a hot tub. What could be more relaxing then that? That is unless you are robbed at gun-point while kicking back.

Being held up was probably the farthest thing from the minds of the 7 friends that were enjoying an evening soak, Until a masked man dressed in black jumped the fence of their apartment complex. Brandishing a gun, the man demanded “Where’s the money?”

“Honestly I thought it was a joke at first,” said one of the victims, a resident of the complex. The robber got away with a backpack, about $20 in cash, a wallet, debit card and a few other items. Not that big of a score, but what do you expect from a bunch of people in bathing suits in a hot tub? At least the take was about $2.86 per victim.

Witnesses believe there was another man on the other side of the fence acting as a look out.

Police believe this incident may be related to an attempted carjacking by 2 men dressed in black and armed with handguns in the same general area.

As the old saying goes, Crime doesn’t pay.

In these past two instances, it may pay, but it’s just barely enough to be at all worth it.

Be Safe, Be Prepared, How much blood can you squeeze out a a stone anyways?
