Original 4Rivers Smokehouse Robbed

Written By Scott Joseph On April 10, 2012

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 4Rivers Smokehouse in Winter Park was robbed by two men armed with a handgun and a knife. The robbers entered the restaurant on West Fairbanks Avenue through the rear door and forced one of the four workers present to open the safe. They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

I don’t know much about the robbing business, but it seems counter-intuitive to hold a place up at the beginning of the day, long before the long lines start forming for the 4Rivers barbecue. 

What about you other robbers out there? What advice do you have for these obvious neophytes?
