This makes me sick every time I hear about something like this happening in Kingwood. All I can think is that my son and his friends could have been in there. I love Kingwood, but it's gone downhill over the last few years.
I am thinking it has to have been an inside job. Maybe not a direct hire, but the friend of someone that works there. Had to have been. Who else would have ever thought to rob a Taco Bell at 5 am?
Many prayers going out to the employees. I do hope this person is found and sent to jail.
No kidding. If he gets caught could you imagine him explaining to a bank robber he also got caught for the same thing but it was a Taco Bell. He would be the laughing stock of the prison. 99.99% inside job. First suspect: dumbest person on the night shift.
