Claws Up, Don't Shoot

From the LVRJ: A bystander armed with a handgun played a key role in stopping a Thursday night robbery at a Las Vegas Red Lobster, according to police.
The customer, who had a concealed weapon permit, fired a warning shot when he was confronted by a man stealing money from the seafood chain on Decatur Boulevard just south of U.S. Highway 95.
Police believe 28-year-old Dillon Webb entered the restaurant at 200 S. Decatur Blvd. brandishing a gun about 9:45 p.m. Thursday. He threatened customers and employees and grabbed the cash register drawer, police said.
Webb fled the building on foot, carrying the drawer, where he met the armed patron in the parking lot, police said. The customer fired one shot and the suspect dropped the cash drawer and ran from the parking lot.
Officers arrested Webb less than a half mile away shortly after in the 4600 block of Meadows Lane, police said. They recovered the stolen money, cash drawer and a gun.
I'm glad no one was hurt but I have to say, I don't mind that the red Lobster was robbed.  They are the only restaurant I have ever gone to that has double billed me.. 2 times.
