    "You can tell that he's indeed a white guy...check out the pants. They're pulled up."

    Haha that's awesome, I love it. So true!

    Actually the only thing that indicates is that it was a male over the age of 20ish. Anyone with a teenager in high school knows that having pants down around the knees does not indicate race.

    The parking lot there is so dark that I once had a nightmare about it. Landlord, add more area lights, please.

    I've worked over at Lowes Foods in Garner for 8 1/2 almost 9 years. When both my Taxi driver and I had pulled up in the store parking lot, there was four police cars. I wanted to go inside so, I can find out what was going on. One of my co-workers that I work with, had said not to go inside the building.

    I've became very concerned and had found out of what had happened. We were waiting outside in the parking lot area, inside her car. One of my friends had told me our co-workers were ok, no one got hurt.

    I felt very bad for them but, was very greatful that Jesus was looking after them, and to be with them during a tough situtation.

    Godbless!

    RB-1 - I'm sure the employees of the store were able to see the robber better than we can in the photo. They wouldn't say he was white if he wasn't.

    RB-1: It looks like he's wearing gloves. You can tell that he's indeed a white guy...check out the pants. They're pulled up.
