Why would you leave cash in a register overnight? That was dumb. Hide the money in the freezer or somewhere that’s not obvious.


Didn’t a guy with a striped shirt go into an apartment through a fire escape and steal a watch and $200 on the same side of the blvd?

Maybe, but I don’t think people think to put on a “I’m going to rob people” uniform when they commit crimes… Probably just coincidence.


Why would any store leave cash in the register over night, and this guy looked like he knew this store did that. I really don’t understand, it costs $200 for a nice safe that’s not easy to break or haul. At least lock the register, for gods sake.


Wow Lenny’s had $500 cash, on hand?!? Must’ve been weeks since they went to the bank.
