AUSTIN, TX — An East Austin taco truck was robbed at gunpoint Friday. The encounter was caught on surveillance video, and the owner hopes releasing it will lead to an arrest.
“He was specifying, saying where’s the money, where’s the money, and pointing the gun directly at one of the employees,” said Rogelio Lozano, owner of Jefes Tacos.
The suspect stole all the money in the tip jar and register and even made off with the employee’s purse.
Lozano believes the thief stole over $500.
“Money, you know, we can always recover. That is not my concern. Their safety was my biggest concern,” said Lozano.
