  1. The other Nick will be around soon to tell us it’s “gang related.” He thinks everything is gang related. He might be right on this one.

  2. Why work when you can just steal and rob from others? I guess EBT, WIC and section 8 isnt enough for these people. These idiots are just simply stealing from a corporation, they are tramatizing people for the rest of their lives. People and business with their head in the sand are the ones that will be vistims, these scumbags prey on the weak and vulnerable.

  3. Did we ever get cameras we paid for on HWY 4 that was promised? Did they capture useful evidence?

  4. I think stores which have high-end merchandise should keep their doors locked and ONLY admit people BY APPOINTMENT. This includes tech related products and jewelry stores.

    • Dawn – I understand your point, but no one is going to make an appointment to buy something. I understand locked doors too, but a lot of people will walk away from a locked door – and businesses want everyone to walk in. That’s how they make money. They’re willing to roll the dice.

      Also – If a thief has a gun and he’s “locked out” there’s no guarantee he won’t shoot through the window, especially if he’s on drugs. The you have dead employees and customers.

      $30,000 was “cash and electronics” – not just cash. It’s not fishy – it’s business.
