Recognize these individuals? They stole brisket meat from a small business owner in Central Lubbock.

Shawn Stephens, owner of Chopped & Sliced BBQ Restaurant and Catering caught the footage on his security cameras. The individuals apparently staked his restaurant out the day before and came back with bolt cutters. You can see that footage here (some NSFW language).

Small businesses are owned by our neighbors. They are also the backbone of the American economy. When you steal from them, you are hurting real people. The only way we can combat the ridiculous amount of property crime in Lubbock is to watch out for our neighbors.
