Four of the robberies occurred along the New Bern Avenue corridor, and in each incident, a single suspect entered a business, took money and left the area on foot, investigators said.

    (Aside: @STORMCROW and @OBAMACARE RIDES AGAIN -- You guys are hilarious.)

    I wonder how much $ they managed to get. In that part of town, it may be another "committing some serious crime for a grand total of $40." Like the kid who robbed a pizza delivery guy at gun point for pizzas worth $35. w00t
