DENTON, Texas – Police will not file charges against a clerk whose parents and husband were charged with robbing the pizza restaurant where she worked, officials said. Police said the clerk didn't know they planned to rob the Pizza Patron Friday night.
While the robbery was in progress, the clerk discovered her father, Benjamin Ramirez, was the robber when another clerk struck him, knocking him out and knocking off his wig and sunglasses. He was later apprehended after witnesses followed the getaway pickup.
"Her husband told us she didn't know. He knew they were going to rob someplace but he thought it was going to be a convenience store," police Sgt. James Brett said in a story in Monday's online editions of the Denton Record-Chronicle.
A surveillance video corroborated the clerk's story. A police report shows the trio was in custody within 14 minutes of the robbery.
All three suspects were charged with aggravated robbery.
