It Would Appear My Neighborhood 7-Eleven Is Popular With Cigarette, Lotto Ticket Thieves

This morning, the Dallas Police Department sent word: It's looking for two men who, over the course of the past few weeks, have been hitting the 7-Eleven at Walnut Hill and Marsh. There are videos, of course; they follow. In both it's hard to tell what's happening, but per the police reports, during late-night and early-morning hours men walk into the convenience store, threaten the clerk, walk around the counter and stuff bags full of cigarettes.

In the first video you'll see, the man asks the clerk where he might find the bathroom. The clerk shows him, but the man returns moments later. He tells the clerk and a customer not to move, that "this shit is mine." In the second clip, a different man also gets away with more than $1,400 in lottery tickets. But a search of DPD's police reports reveals that particular 7-Eleven has been hit often in recent years -- 60 times, by my count, since '05. Among the items taken: everything from cases of Corona to 25 tubes of Crest to an entire gas pump. Meanwhile, the next-door Big Daddy's, which used to be a Hasty, has been visited twice by DPD during the same time frame.

That's the 7-Eleven closest to my house. I'm there all the time (well, you know what I mean, though they do sell SkyBars for 50 cents, which is a steal ... no, wait, officer, that's not what I meant). It's where I grabbed the photo you see above: There was a pit bull in a holiday sweater wandering the shared parking lot on a recent Saturday night, close to midnight. Feel free to use it as next year's Christmas card. No wonder going there always feels like such an adventure.

R W-- Question for DPD:Every criminal in Dallas knows that 7-11's policy is to not resist or put up a fight or use a gun... Makes for easy pickings.

We lived for one year on Northaven, off of Webb's Chapel in the early 1970's. That was when there were so many holdups of 7-11's, DPD instituted a wonderful policy/program called "shotgun patrols." They had cops on late-night, with shotgun at the ready, no joke. They also planted DPD officers in the most likely to be hit places, and they surprised a few that way. Problem was alleviated...Since Southland Corp is based here in Dallas, it seems the cost of helping to defray the cost of this would possibly save a clerk's life. Were you able to get any comments from Southland ?

Somebody stole a gas pump?  The whole pump?  How?  Why?  Did the thief think the pump would magically continue to have gas in it?

Since Brett Johnson left TJ, is anyone allowed a opinion, or qualified to have one?

Celebrate divershitty, you white-guilt libtard. You get to live with the conditions for which you have so tirelessly "progressively advocated". 

Pretty soon your cowardly censorship won't matter because you won't be able to continue ignoring the awful facts in the near future.

Always been curious why they bother to install these so-called "security cameras", when you can only vaguely make out the image of anyone there-in inscribed. Might even be a Yeti.

Happy religious or secular holiday to you!

Would this be a good forum to ask that this particular 7-11 repair their Slurpee machine?  They are far from frozen.  Far too liquidy.   Perhaps people wouldn't rip them off so much if they had proper Slurpee machine.

Things have changed so much since those after school stops at the Dairy Queen that once called that adjoining shopping center home, as well as Lantrips across Walnut Hill, which seemed to be a required daily stop before and/or after a day spent at Cary/TJ. Don't get me started on Winchell's.

Ah, the end of another year.

"the man asks the clerk where he might find the bathroom. The clerk shows him, but the man returns moments later. He tells the clerk and a customer not to move, that "this shit is mine.""

I don't want to know what was in his hands.

This looks like a Big Daddy's Beverages, not a 7-11.  The authentic iron bar exterior indicates this is likely the site of quite a few robberies.  The owners may want to institute lock down sales procedures (drive through only, bullet proof console).

I'm glad you clarified that was a dog in the shot. For a second I thought it was a (feral) hog.

Because one thing Texas is known for is its progressive, liberal attitude toward crime and punishment.

I think it is way past the "Must Use By" date on your brain. You spend too much time in your parents crawlspace breathing fiberglass insulation.

I'll say something when I swing by on the way home for a pack of smokes, a Mexican Coke and a SkyBar.

Lantrip's, once home to the greatest comic-book spinner rack this side of the Remember When Shop on Valwood Parkway. Several fellow TJ Patriots worked the next-door Baskin-Robbins; when I had hair, it was cut next door, at the barber shop next to ... that was a Kroger, no? Facing Walnut Hill? And, sigh, the Winchell's. When did I get so old?

Well, as I mention in the piece: The Big Daddy's and 7-Eleven share a parking lot. The dog was wandering between the two, and when I took the photo, well, he was next door ... at the far safer, per police reports, liquor store. Because the dog needed some whiskey. Given his state of dress, he was clearly off to a better party than I.

Your lame insults are hilarious!!!

Too bad they are useless when it comes to negating the facts of reality that goofy white-guilt Libtards like you love to ignore.

Thanks...to be specific ...it is the sugar free flavor.  Now, I have to go check out Mexican Coke.

That WAS a Kroger, and that barber shop was called "Marsh Hare". Rowdy and his wife and her father were the barbers. Long ago, there was an Orange Julius roughly where the Wendy's is now, and many TJ REBELS worked there, over the years.

Abortion is awesome!!!

I'm totally 100% pro-abortion, because abortion kills tens of thousands of future black criminals every single year.

You white-guilt Libtards wouldnt be so naive if abortion was illegal, because you would be up to your ears in the shit and it would be so bad it would be impossible for you to ignore.

Without legal abortion, your white libtard enclaves of Lakewood and north oak cliff would be TOTALLY OVERRUN.

I bet after careful consideration your mother believes in abortion, now. May even be considering post-natal abortion.
