HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – If burglars were looking for money at a popular hot chicken restaurant in the heights, they weren’t going to find it early Sunday morning.

“Because we don’t have cash,” said Christopher Frydenlund, co-owner of Mico’s Hot Chicken on N. Durham.

In fact, signs outside and on the door warn customers that only cards are accepted as a means of payment. It’s a decision Frydenlund and his wife made when they were just a food truck.

“We decided at the time that we weren’t going to be another food truck getting broken into,” Frydenlund said. “So since then we’ve run out of cash and that’s great.”

So when the crooks searched their office, as seen on surveillance video, they couldn’t find any money. Instead, they stole a laptop, an iPad, and 15 cases of lemonade.

“We know our lemonade is very popular, but we were surprised that it was on target,” said Frydenlund, who estimates the loss at a few thousand dollars.

The video shows the burglars smashing a window to enter.

Owning a small business is hard enough, and Frydenlund is disappointed that the crooks are making it harder. At least, he said, they felt the love of their customers.

“We had our busiest night ever. So we felt the community was supporting us and we are really grateful,” said Frydenlund.
