    I had just dropped my husband off for work at UPS @ 8:40am, I always shop there. I almost stopped there, but decided to go on to get my spray tan instead, I could have been there when this accured, & I already have severe anxiety & panic attacks! This is horrible, I sure hope they catch him! I bet he didnt get much money out of it either! I know the workers very well also! I’ve been shopping here for atleast 10 yrs or more! I know he will be caught & I hope he gets alott of time!!!

    If you going to rob something, why rob a dollar store? Go big or just forget about it and go back home. You big DUMMY!!!!

    Is it too much to ask for security cameras to have resolution better than 360p these days? Where did they buy those cameras? Dollar General? T&W Flea Market circa 1990?

    I know that Guy. He back at it again. He just got out of prison some years ago for the same thing.

    And if like all other Family Dollars I bet the person
    In the store was by themselves until afternoon time.
    I won’t shop in there early cause I’m scared something will
    happen . I like to see.more employees

    I bet that numbskull made a whole fifty bucks for a crime that will cost him thousands and prison time. I hope he learns his lesson but he’s going to need a brain.

    Doesn’t the store open at 8 a.m? Robbed at 9 a.m.? Retail stores don’t keep much money in the register plus, most sales are done with debit cards. Lucky if they got $300. Armed robbery for peanuts. Pea brain.

    6 months of Hard Labor would stop a lot of these Burglaries.

    I came through the area right after this occurred. the Sheriffs Office had the K9 out tracking while they searched for the suspect. Its good to see a picture released ASAP versus waiting a days or weeks to ask the public’s help.

    Back in the good ole days the crooks would wait for the sun to go down before shooting and robbing. Now they do it in broad daylight with cameras rolling. Some of them even film it while they’re doing it.
