    At reader…it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what time the robbery happened as I’m sure the cashier working would know or maybe the time she dialed 911 would give a better perspective…Also, you’d think if they seen and knew it was a SUV they probably be able to give the color or if nothing else if it was a dark or light colored SUV…but your right they are pretty smart.

    Thank you SRCS for all you do to keep us safe. This scared me to death. All I can think of is that it’s some meth head needing money for their addiction. They would sell their family for more of that drug.So no wonder they took a chance by robbing a business with cameras. Stupid people. Hope they catch them. Agree it would be nice to have more details on the vehicle.

    I was at the ballgame that night. Even heard part of the call on a deputy’s radio because he was near me. ALL law enforcement left the game immediately. Which means they were like 2 minutes from the gas station. Wish people would give the cops a little credit. They are doing their jobs. The world we live on these days, its a lot safer for them to be at these games than to have no law enforcement on campus. Hope they find these 2!
