1 picture? No car, different angle etc?


Your first clue was that he entered the stop & rob wearing a mask.


At least he is obeying the state mask mandate…..

I think his defense attorney should use that, “My client might have threatened the clerk’s life if they didn’t hand over the money, however he saved an unknown number of lives by masking up and social distancing once the money was handed over. He didn’t want to spread a sickness to the officers so he left . “
