Allegations are that a 40-year-old man from Belton walked into Mr. Mikes Pizza in Temple on Sunday evening, locked employees in the freezer, and took off with cash.

The employees of Mr. Mike's said two men pulled off the robbery and that one of them was armed with a gun. Time to call the camera repairman. The report says the video surveillance system at the pizza place was not operating the evening of the robbery.
