Fed-Up Cell Phone Store Manager Quickly Locks In Robber

Hero Employee Locks Thief In Store: claims an employee at a Houston, Texas cell phone store recently locked an armed robber inside the store until cops could arrive. John Bell tried to shoot his way out of the store before begging the employee to free him. Bell was quickly sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to the charges against him.

Employee Karina Leon tells ABC; “As soon as he went into the office I just immediately got out and got the customer out. I just locked him outside because whenever you lock the door outside, from the inside you can’t open it so I knew he wasn’t going to be able to open it.”
