Someone will drop a tip on someone that has that sweatshirt that no doubt lives on one of those streets behind the station

I read that this happened in the convenience store attached to the gas station and not at the pumps.

Bud I had the same thought, well not that they'd for sure call it in tho I hope so but that someone will know that outfit added to the description and hopefully see this or hear about it. How much proof do we need that most criminals are dumb? You'd think they'd wear a non descript white t shirt. A solid color at least vs a logo or saying shirt. Lmao I hope they catch him and recover the money someone else worked hard for.i hate thieves.
