....four men follwed the manager home after closing, waited one hour and then broke into the house. Forced the manager's wife into the trunk of the car and drove she and her husband back to the store and forced the manager to open the safe. They got away with 32,000.00.

The manager, in his boxer shorts and wife in her nightgown had to cross the highway to a twenty four hour walmart to call the police.

Ya really gotta wonder where they get their management material. 'Round here, 24-7 you can get a police ride, not an escort but a ride to the bank, with a night deposit of your choice, and back again. Still managers continue to store the day's receipts, at the store, or take them home with them. Also there has been a upsurge of cases of managers carrying concealed handguns, that really seams to have stemmed the tide.

Glad they are OK, but tell me again why they could not call from the grocery store they were in after the robbers left?

Another wonderful corporate decision to not allow personal calls from the store?

you do that UM thing, it always makes me feel stupid, and there's usually a good reason. That is a good question. Why do these things always occur to you and not me, huh?

Now that you mention it, I don't know, unless they were just afraid to hang around over there. I'll let you know on Thursday when the paper comes out. Maybe they're just exhibitionists.

Grocery stores tend to be very profitable places for robbers to target. There is a gang of criminals that used to be based out of KY that specialized in nothing but burglarizing grocery stores after hours, and they were very hard to track down and pin crimes on

Sounds like someone knew they had a lot of cash on hand. Most merchants drop at bank to avoid that situation. Inside job maybe?

It's very posible, also a very similar scenario to the move 'Bandits'.
