Man steals thousands of dollars from Sugar Land ice cream parlor
SUGAR LAND, Texas – A man swiped several thousand dollars from an ice cream parlor in Sugar Land -- and a surveillance camera caught him smiling ear-to-ear on his way out.
The theft occurred around 3 p.m. Wednesday at Mystic Dessert Bar, located at Southwest Freeway and Sugar Creek Boulevard.
The owner said the man walked into the store, passed the seating area, toward the office.
He then opened an office door and helped himself to a deposit bag full of cash. The owner said she's devastated.
"We are a small business and every little dollar affects, severely. It's not like $1,000 missing or $2,000 missing is like no big deal. For that -- it's a huge deal for us," said Bilal Rahman, a manager.
The store's owner, Jessica Brooks, is 17 and most of her staff consists of teenagers, as well.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sugar Land police at 281-275-2020.
