LAFAYETTE, La. -- A Nov. 9 after-hours hold-up at BJ's Pizza has convinced the owner to lock his restaurant's back door after dark.

According to the Daily Advertiser, employee Kyle Richard said a masked gunman and at least one accomplice entered the store at about 11:30 p.m. through the building's unsecured back door. As he counted the day's take for that night's deposit, "someone grabbed me from behind and said, 'Don't move or I'll kill you.' "

Richard cooperated immediately and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash. The robbers fled on foot, leaving a trail of $5 bills behind them.

Neither Richard nor any of the four other employees in the store at the time were injured.

"I think everyone did the right thing in not resisting," said Kamal Borchalli, BJ's owner. "If money was the only thing we lost, we were lucky."
