Fast food restaurants take security into their own hands

“I would love to go to a Burger King and eat after dark,” says Ryan Mullen, a security guard at a hotel near the airport who has seen a lot of crime. “I would love to know a Carl’s Jr, a subway, and I don’t have to worry about being a prisoner in my own neighborhood. That’s the disappointment for me. “

And it turns out Burger King isn’t the only chain making changes. Carl’s Jr. across town has a sign in the drive that says they are no longer accepting cash.

KOB 4 asked why, and one employee replied, “These people came and robbed our store, and before that they robbed our other store. I guess they broke the wall, took the safe. I had an AR15 in the Face, you had us all on the floor, it was terrible. “

Mullen, who also lives in southeast Albuquerque, said, “I’ve lived all over the country and I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s crazy.”

According to APD crime statistics, there were more than 2,100 break-ins in Albuquerque and 748 reported robberies in August.
