    I'll bet these fools have been in trouble before!

    they'll probably be back today to pawn these same items.

    Thats the second time they got robbed...late October.

    Might want to rethink their location and security...

    The next prison should be built within 10 miles of Rocky Mount. That alone would save a tremendous amount in transportation costs. Three more losers in trouble. That's right, losers, I'm talking to you. The rest of the area is sooooo proud of you. LOL. Not to mention how proud your parents are seeing your faces on the news.

    Wow!!! Thieves stealing from thieves. That's too funny. The type of business I'm associated with has the misfortune of "things" growing legs and walking away. The good news is, they walk away to the closest pawn shop where the items are pawned or purchased at a fraction of their real value then resold at premium prices. When the items for sale are identified as "stolen" the pawn shop management begins stuttering how they abide by all applicable laws. (yea, right!)

    WOW. Crime has gotten so bad in Rocky Mount that they had to call in the Halifax County Sheriff's Dept to help? Rocky Mount is in Nash and Edgecombe counties.

    I agree Jackieflash42-talk about getting a dumb crook award-these guys should've just walked in there without the hats and sunglasses-they should've waved at the camera as they walked by-DUH!!!!
