Security

In April, 2008, a settlement was reached in the wrongful death suit of a clerk who was kidnapped from a Hobbs, New Mexico Allsup's store. The clerk had been working the overnight shift when she was abducted, raped and murdered. As a result of the settlement, efforts to protect convenience-store clerks working night shifts have escalated. The New Mexico Environmental Health Board ordered that all stores open between 11pm and 7am must either have no fewer than 2 clerks on duty, station a security guard with a clerk working that shift alone, or place clerks in an enclosure behind bulletproof glass.cite news
