    I work there, and can definitely say that none of our workers fit that it's not an inside job. Yeah our store is in a nice neighborhood, but there's crime everywhere. And yes, the money bags are kept behind locked doors with PLENTY of cameras...but there's no locks or cameras when someone is taking a trip to the bank.

    Having worked at a food lion I can say this is a strange case. We had to deal with the money bags behind locked doors with a camera. I don't see how this could have happened.

    It's not about survival. There is going to be a specific percentage of the population that will just take. Its a fact. No excuse about not having a job. Not where they grew up. Some adults just make the decision to live off others. Thank God its a small group, but please don't explain their behavior by saying its anything but a choice. Plenty of poor people arn't thieves. The truth is: We wouldn't have crime, if we didn't have criminals. Be safe out there!

    I agree with careful submission. People please be careful out ther. I use to work at the Mall when it was around and we got robbed coming out of the mall leaving to go home and make a deposit. It was about six employees leaving and someone came with a gun and demanded money. It's not a funny thing. Just be extremely careful this time of year but most of all be careful at all time because people are out of work and they are willing to do anything in order to survive.

    I must admit, I have a black hoodie. Should I turn myself in or stay on the lamb?

    people please be careful this time of year, going to those banks dropping off deposits, people are out of jobs need money and can;t get work, cause some just aint gonna look for it, they would rather lay in wait for you with a big bag, knowing money is in it and grab and go, look around you before you get out, check things out before you just make the drop cause you ready to go home your life is not worth, that bag of money
