    what i find fishy about this story is... family dollar is not open at 6:15 in the morning. they don't open early enough to warrant an employee being there that early unless they were receiving a truck or something.

    It probably took two guys to carry more than $50 away from a Family Dollar. Thats a lot of $1 bills.
