WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Several businesses are looking to change their routine on how they handle cash deposits following the shooting of a well-known Wichita restaurant owner.
Police say Chuck Giles was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds to his body in the driveway of his home late Friday. They believe he was robbed after leaving his business Neighbors Bar and Grill near 21st and Amidon.
Roman Romero has owned Angela's Cafe for more than 20 years. The restaurant is on the same street as Neighbors Bar and Grill.
Romero says he is concerned. He says the murder is something that concerns his customers as well.
"You can’t ever be too careful, it could happen to anybody," Romero said. "A lot of people are feeling sad about this because he was probably a nice person and it’s pretty terrible when something like this happens."
Romero lives about a half mile away from where Giles was murdered. He says his family is concerned about his safety when he carries money to and from his own restaurant.
"She said dad, people think that just because you own a business that you carry large sums of money, and really you might not have any money. Somebody can take your life for robbing you," Giles said.
Now, Romero is changing his routine.
"We can try to make deposits at night instead of carrying cash," Romero said. "Either that or wait until the morning to make the deposits."
Neighbors Bar and Grill will have an open house Wednesday afternoon from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. to share memories of Giles.
