An Armed Gang of Meat Thieves Robbed Two Salesmen of Hundreds of Steaks

All delicious, but worth armed robbery?
The haircuts at Triple D Cuts & Styles on Sunnyvale Road must be top notch. They were certainly hard to pass up for two Grillmasters salesman who decided on Friday afternoon to take a break from their meat hawking and stop in for a trim. They decided the truck full of frozen steaks could wait.

They were right on that front. They told police that both truck and steaks were still there when they were thrown out of Triple D a while later after one of them tried to pay with a counterfeit $100 bill.

Just as they were getting ready to leave, they told officers that 10 men appeared, all of them carrying guns. They made the guy who tried to pass off the fake bill lay on the asphalt next to the truck and directed his colleague to sit in the driver's seat and stay there. Then, while the salesmen were kept at gunpoint, the men jumped into the bed of the truck and began unloading steaks.

They made off with 72 boxes of steak. That's boxes, mind you, each of which contains anywhere from four to 10 individual cuts of meat according to the Grillmasters website. So we're talking somewhere between 278 to 720 stolen steaks.

Loot in hand, the gang of meat thieves sent the two salesmen on their way, then fired two rounds into the back of the truck as they left. Police found bullet holes in the tailgate and one of the rear panels.

It was a somber car ride. They had just been robbed of $1,200 worth of steaks while sneaking in hair cuts when they were supposed to be working. The guy in the passenger seat was scared and asked to be dropped off at his mom's house. The driver, scared not so much of the robbers as what he might suffer at the hands of his boss, drove aimlessly around Dallas for two hours, then called police.

Police have the area steaked out, acting on a tri-tip that there will be a meating of thugs looking to settle a beef.

For those who think this story is not real, you obviously don't know about the large BBQ going on down at Fair Park.

Who buys meat from the back of a truck.

Better yet, who buys it from 10 guys carrying guns?

Are we sure the salesman didn't just make an incredible deal that his boss will fire him for ?

I suspect the steaks were purchased with the same faux currency rejected by the salon. Why were the salesmen not detained for passing counterfeit currency?

To me it sounds more likely that these 2 idiots staged the whole thing and stole the steaks themselves. They already showed their character when they tried to pass a counterfeit bill.

UPDATE:  One of the suspects was butchered when his vehicle was T-Boned on the strip.  The other two suspects, Phil A and Mean Juan, have been apprehended and are being grilled by police.

@oakclifftownie oh it was an incredible deal, meat or his life, he made the right choice.  


On a side note, if the mother fucking meat man knocks on my mother fucking door one more mother fucking time after I told him to stop 3 times because it wakes my kid up, imma fuck him up.  Shit I bought meat from the fucker twice already and the second time I called him to come out and reminded him there is no need to knock, Ill call when Im ready to buy.  I guess this mother fucker wants his last remaining tooth knocked the fuck out

@primi_timpano Has NO ONE on this thread ever been the victim of bad money passing? I once cashed a check at the bank, went to the grocery store and then to get gas at 7-11, but two of my $20's were counterfeit. No way to prove it, no way to track it, just, I'm suddenly out 40 bucks.

Uncharacteristic tirade. The tenacity, temerity and miserable manners of this meat man motherfucker must make Merkin mad.

@scottindallas @Daniel Such self-serving silliness satisfies some simpletons such as Scott.  Superior sapiens stand steadfastly on the sidelines, sneering.
