“Since the quarantine I worry about my employees,” Fagalde said.
Fagalde has owned DB Steakhouse for four years said nothing of this matter has occurred in the past.
Both individuals managed to break in through the back door and steal significant amount of items along with intentionally damaging other items forcing the restaurant to close Wednesday.
