Cracker Barrel in Temple Robbed at Gunpoint Monday Morning
Some people's priorities are just all kinds of wrong.
Take, for example, whoever robbed Temple's Cracker Barrel restaurant early Monday morning.
Chelsea Edwards with our news partner, KWTX, reports that a man entered the restaurant at 3687 S General Bruce Dr as employees were preparing to open early this morning, drew a gun, and demanded cash. He then fled on foot. The robbery was reported around 5 AM, and the restaurant was closed for a bit before reopening around mid-morning.
Police say they're looking for an African-American man wearing grey sweatpants and a grey sweater.
Now, I don't condone robbery, but how much cash do you think you're going to get from a restaurant that hasn't even opened for the breakfast rush yet? Also, why even take cash? There's all that great candy up front, and you could demand a dozen or so orders of biscuits and gravy.
I know, I know. Stealing is wrong, and especially when it's done at gunpoint. I think seeing this story just made me hungry for a Country Morning Breakfast.
If you know anything about the crime or the suspect, you should contact the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.
