Masked man with a gun robs SLO Trader Joe’s

July 4, 2016

Trader Joe'sA man robbed the San Luis Obispo Trader Joe’s at gunpoint Sunday night. The suspect got away, and police are still searching for him.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., just after the grocery store at 3988 S. Higuera Street had closed, the masked suspect entered through a door that was left partially open, brandished a handgun and demanded money, according to the San Luis Obispo Police Department.

The suspect then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Investigators have not identified the getaway car, but they say it may have been a gold sedan.

    Guessing that the door left partially open will now be locked at closing time. It’s time to be aware and realize that the happiest town in America has a theft problem.

    “… just after the grocery store… had closed, the masked suspect entered through a door that was left partially open…”

    I believe this is what the law enforcement community typically refers to as “an inside job.” And the first people the cops will talk to will probably be former and present employees.

    They closed half an hour earlier, an hour and ten minutes after sunset on a Sunday night, and “a door was..left open.”

    Enough said. So goes it with a Progressive, increasingly Leftist town being overrun by a staggering ship of fools.

      Really??? I won’t dispute that SLO is increasingly “Progressive” but how does that relate to a routine armed robbery? What is is about people that they feel the need to use every possible opportunity to bash those with whom they disagree politically? Aren’t there enough legitimate differences to rant about?

    It was probably a senior then, as my wife says that only old people drive gold colored cars.
