    Wasn't anything captured on the cameras ? I know there are 2 of them in the store . Why don't they release the images ? Maybe someone will recognize the guys.

    Chrissy, I had to go and talk to someone but I still had to quit cause I could not work there by myself nomore and even after I got robbed they said they would put two people in the store but they did not. I tried to do it but just could not. If you ever want to talk the one girl who works there knows how to get ahold of me.

    Well, once again we don't know whether they're black or white. It seems there was a lot of info given to the police by the victim. You can eliminate 80% of the population by stating their color. More politically correct descriptions. Either the police are trying to be PC or the TV site is.

    Honestly, the more information and the more details we get out there to the public, the more chance I feel there could beleading to their arrest. And not even 24 hours later, I'm still outrageously appalled to the small amount of information and details there are on this news story with the list of things I gave to the police.

    Chrissy, I am sorry to find out this happened to you. I know how it feels to get robbed. I got robbed 2 years ago at the Handy Mart in Chocowinity and its a very scary feeling. I hope they catch these guys that did this to you. My heart and prayers go out to you,please be careful out there.
