Carl Wallace received word that someone broke into one of his Diablo’s Southwest Grill locations in Augusta, The Augusta Chronicle reports. The thief busted into the Wheeler Road burrito chain by smashing the glass front door with a brick, and made off with the businesses cash register.
Instead of getting upset, Wallace decided to offer peace and a helping hand to the burglar.
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…
“Our burritos are such a smash hit we’ve got people breaking in at 4 a.m. for their fix,” he joked on Facebook.
“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,” Wallace stressed, sharing his personal cell phone number.
“No police, no questions. Let’s sit down and talk about how we could help you and fix the road you’re on.”
The Facebook post has since gone viral.
“I can’t save the world but maybe I can make a change in one person’s life,” he told the Chronicle. “If they’re willing to do better then I’m willing to be there for them… The police catch him and he’s back on the street a few days later and that person’s life didn’t get corrected.”
