Instead Of Pressing Charges, Restaurant Owner Offers Burglar A Job

“No police, no questions.”

  • Diablo’s Southwest Grill was robbed last April 3.
  • Instead of pressing charges, owner Carl Wallace decided to offer the burglar a job in his business.
  • “There are better opportunities out there than this path you’ve chosen,” he said.

Restaurant owner Carl Wallace was shocked after learning that a robber smashed the front door of Diablo’s Southwest Grill into pieces last April 3, Saturday. Apparently, the crook broke into his business earlier that morning.

While he was understandably upset about the burglary, it didn’t take long for him to have a change of heart. “My initial reaction was anger and frustration… typical emotional response anyone would have,” he said. “After my anger subsided, I kinda thought about it from a different perspective.”

Wallace later posted on their official Facebook page:

“Our burritos are such a smash hit we’ve got people breaking in at 4am for their fix. So if ya see our door looking hurricane fabulous at Wheeler Rd this is why.

“To the would be robber who is clearly struggling with life decisions or having money issues… please swing by for a job application. There are better opportunities out there than this path you’ve chosen.”

The good businessman then left his contact information and assured “No police, no questions. Let’s sit down and talk about how we could help you.”

Naturally, the post eventually went viral and Diablo’s has since received an “outpouring of love and support” from the community.

“I decided to make a post offering him a hand up in life vs the typical cycle that hasn’t worked in 200 years,” he shared. “Crime… jail time… harder to land a job because of a criminal record equals back to life of crime and the cycle repeats.”

So far, Diablo’s has not heard from the robber yet although “an anonymous tip has given us a lead in the case,” confirmed Wallace.
