    This is the second time I’ve heard Havasu’s KFC has been robbed like this. You’d think the first time would warrant new safety precautions, locked door policy or something. How about now?

    This doesn’t just happen. A local restaurant doesn’t just get robbed for the second or third time within a few years. They gotta get deeper into this, to me it seems it’s a set up by employees.

    robbery during spring break time is usually high. My dad and fellow employees were held at gun point a couple years ago at red robin. They installed a fence in the back area and a gate code for employees to get in . Within that month though 5+ other local places were hit.
