quite often the people who own/run this shop have their toddler child with them behind the counter. i hope she wasn’t there when this happened. if the thieving scuzz is local to the area they would know this which makes them even more scuzzy than the normal scuzz.

What else do we know about this character? Caucasian ,170cm, average build , black hoodie. Attempted robbery. Walked away empty-handed. Sound similar to the guy who earlier in the year attempted the same thing. Hey fella’s the cash register won’t open! Perhaps he’ll drop in for some milk tomorrow. Get the squad. Car ready.

nobody said :

Caucasian Bastard. Glad he left empty handed, and I hope he was in debt to his dealer and copped a bashing from him for not paying up.

Yeah.
