  1. Chain convenience stores all use cash drop safes that the clerk can’t open. Prob no more than a couple hundred bucks in the drawer, max. Probably better off stealing their cigarettes. Crazy that crooks would do an armed robbery + firearm enhancement + battery (gotta be serious time) for those stakes. Dumb. I feel bad for the clerk– I assume he’s not getting paid enough to face down violent crooks.

    • @Danielle – No car seen, that we’ve been told about. And if we get any video or stills, we’ll certainly run them.
