A CASH REWARD OF UP TO $1000.00 is being offered for the tip that leads to the arrest and indictment of the suspects responsible for this attempt robbery.
It’s truly unfortunate that this particular store has been hit by several robberies in the recent months. The business has security cameras inside the store, but the front windows are covered by advertisement, which makes robbers to get away easily. We’ve asked the store owner to clear up the window, so that things inside the store can be seen from outside, but without much success. Police will start working on a security plan for the store and we plan to talk to the store owner about that very soon.
Sorry for being the bearer of this news. Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.
This morning, Police has released this reward poster
