    Tell Scotty to beam you up people. These comments are short on intelligence. By necessity, the Turkey Hill is a cash heavy location. $250.00 will keep the repeat offender high and functional for about a week, until the drug of choice and cash runs out. I guess Pot Smoker isn’t really into any “habit.” Good man.

    As with any cash situation, the instructions to the employees is to hand over the cash. NO HEROES ALLOWED. Ask your bank if you doubt me. $2,500 is not worth an injury. Certainly $250.00 is not.

    Having had experience managing a cash only gas station in Ossining, NY which is home of Sing Sing Prison. Given the low pay, I had a problem with getting employees. I used to hire wives and girl friends of the local police (sometime both). The police would be there to say hello to their friend’s family occasionally and the Black & White stopped the drive offs and robberies cold. When I left, the District Manager who was later arrested for arson, through all the police related personnel out. (Is any one surprised?) The location became an ATM machine before there were ATM machines.

    Eventually, the robbers will get caught doing something bad and become a $250 a night liability of the taxpayer to cure their problem.

      You post sounds logical UNTIL you figure the cost of the police coverage, the exposure the rest of the jurisdiction has but to crime and other service the police perform and the low likelihood of the repeat offense while the police are there. These crooks are observant.

      On the other hand, I have a former police car you could tow there and park on the lot………………….

    This just keeps getting better. But I’m sure they still have 100 signs on the windows blocking cops driving by to see anything going on, poorly lit parking lots, beta-max quality video surveillance, no armed security guards, employees not dropping money into a drop box every hour. They should be ashamed of themselves.
