Anyone who goes by Lockhart Smokehouse in Bishop Arts for lunch today is bound to be disappointed — and they might be disappointed at dinner, too. Why? Because someone stole the restaurant's water meter, according to their social media.

Why would someone steal a water meter? Apparently people have their reasons, and one of those reasons includes installing the meter elsewhere if the utility company has removed a meter for non-payment.

At any rate, we can definitely tack this one onto Catherine Downes' list of the craziest things stolen from Dallas restaurants. Keep an eye on Lockhart's social media to see if they'll be opening for dinner. Don't these thieves know that it's burnt end day?
