    Last I checked..this is a burglary and not a robbery.

    The owner needs a camera like the one that takes a picture of your license plate at 65 mph on the toll road. My plate was clear as a bell!

    I don't understand why there's seldom a good photo of the perp, given the technology available. The camera they have is obviously just a waste of money.

    Dont worry guys, super sleuth detective Josh MacMonagle is on the case.

    So from the pic, we're looking for a teeny tiny guy, race undetermined, wearing a hoodie with a very grainy complexion.

    Thanks, WRAL.
