Rick Barton, owner of Hunky’s went to the bank this morning (Friday, July 31), put the cash in a bank bag under the seat of his car and stopped at Kroger on Cedar Springs Road before returning to his restaurant.
When he returned to the car, his window was broken out and the money taken. At the time of the report, he was waiting for police to arrive to file a police report, according to Dallas Voice reporters Linda Depriter and Joey.
Barton said he must have been followed from his bank at Wycliff and Lemmon to Kroger.
When police arrived they looked at parking lot surveillance video taken by Kroger to see if cameras caught who broke into the car.
UPDATE: 12:44 p.m.
Dallas Voice reporter Stephen Mobley said two men are being detained by Dallas Police at the Valero gas station across the street from Kroger on Cedar Springs Road. He said seven police cars are at the station and two detectives are collecting evidence. He didn’t know whether the arrests are connected to Barton’s robbery earlier this morning.
