    This happened Saturday morning, here it is Tuesday still no update. What are you not telling us? Keep the community informed or is it some big secret? Get the word out.

    This is what I have been told: A man went into the gas station on Saturday morning, sprayed WD-40 into the cashier's face then forced her to give him the money. Then he ran on foot back to the Tranter's Creek neighbor and then through the woods back towards the Washington city limits.

    To All Citizens-this was like the Wal-mart robbery-there was no information on what the robber looked like and have you heard any thing else about it? you probably want. To C Dawg-just to lt you know,the BCSO was on the sene momentsafter the call came in. The first call went out as an asault on a person at that location.

    This is strange that we have had no other information on the story. What is the reason? We would like to be informed as there is still a robber on the loose. What are we to look for? The description would be nice. How much longer do we have to wait before we have more light shed on the situation?

    Where did it say it was an armed robbery? Story just stated they were investigating a robbery. Do you know more about the story? Please inform. We are all ears.

    There is a robber on the loose. It happened at 8:30a.m. We need further information. Well past 12 hours since incident, inform the public of further information. Someone may be able to help out. We the public are in the dark. Maybe you need to think about offering a reward. You know people will talk for $$$. KEEP US INFORMED!!

    Hey Really, why would you capitalize "why" it's behind a comma not a period, no need to capitalize. Glass houses, just sayin.

    Glad the Washington PD is investigating this robbery. It would go unhandled if the "famed" BCSO was investigating. Im glad Washington is receiving good services from their local PD. All BCSO would do is send them a letter saying it wasnt important to investigate an armed robbery.

    I live right behind there and the clerk told me the girl was maced or pepper sprayed and then the lone robber took off to my neighborhood. There were still searching a little while ago.

    At least WPD responded to the robbery, BCSO would have just mailed them a letter!
