Yes, even your favorite late-night munchie establishments in gentrifying neighborhoods are not immune from to crime.

Investigators say the suspect [carrying a presumably terrifying sawed-off shotgun] was waiting for the two employees and two customers after they closed up Loco Pez on the 2400 block of Norris Street in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. The suspect forced the victims back into the bar where he stole $70 from them before taking another $1,000 from inside the business.

Nobody was hurt, but the suspect got away. At least there weren’t any burritos used in the crime.
