Around noon today, a robber pointed a gun at a man in the 6900 block of Orchid Lane and stole his $100 Samsung cell phone. Alan Relf apparently isn’t too shaken up. Relf runs Irving-based Alan’s Gates and, when I called the office 20 minutes ago, he was “out in the field” after canceling his phone service and picking up a temporary replacement, says the receptionist. She also says Relf got lucky: he happened to leave his wallet in the car.
I tried calling his new cell phone, but got an out-of-service recording. I left a message with the receptionist asking him to give me a call. When/if he does, I’ll update.
