they have video and the type of car he drove and plenty of evidence and eye witness accounts. Detectives should really have this perp locked up pretty soon. waiting for that updated report , ( I'm sorry but covering a little bit of your face and robbing a store in your flip flops is not a well thought out robbery ) it's just plain ol' pathetic. I hate to think about a possible motive here, but seems some one like this may have needed the money to continue a drug or alchohol habit. because it's clear that this robbery wasnt well thought out (especially in the disguise department. ) SMH.....
