    Apparently the robbers never worked fast food or they would know that you cannot lock someone in a walkin freezer, unless the door is wedged shut or something to that effect.

    I am sure the number is quite higher, but this is at least the 14th or 15th strong arm RESTERAUNT robbery in NC so far in 2012. Pass HB111 now and start turning the tables on the criminals and allowing law abiding citizens to defend themselves. Check out www.GRNC.com

    Certainly glad no one was hurt. But I pray they catch these criminals and get them off the streets before they do harm or kill someone.

    at least they only put them in a freezer and not in the ground!
    Hope they are caught soon as the next victims might not be so lucky.
