    So very sad. The business should have had cameras installed all over their property. Now a killer is getting away. If you know anything, give the police a call.

    Iseeu - I have worked at a variety of different pizza stores and chains in the last 15 years. In the stores that had security cameras - no robberies. In the stores that do not have security camera's I was robbed 3 times in 16 months. If the owners take the appropriate precautions, it can be a relatively safe job. Not that having camera's stop ALL robberies, but it is a MAJOR deterrent. I also worked in Durham and was not robbed (thanks to camera's)- that's saying a lot. That particular store was(is) riddled with drugs and employees that openly talk about gang involvement and activities, including robbing people for(of) drugs. Because of the owners lack of action towards the end, I started carrying an illegally concealed firearm for my own safety. It seems that is now justified. This saddens me to no end.
