How about a surveillance camera at this pharmacy? Also was this man caucasian, afro- american, hispanic? Why doesn't the news print the perpatrator's race? Seems that crime is up in Fenton, time to do a story on year-to-year levels of crimes in and around town.

I was at the pharmacy just sitting in my car waiting for my sis to drop off some cash so I could pick up my scripts, it all happened so fast I didn't even see the guy come out, only saw the manager sprinting across the parking lot and thats when I was given the green light to follow so I tore through multiple parking lots and didn't even get a glimpse of the Escalade. The pharmacy now has an excellent surveillance system so these crimes will not continue at the rate they were going, hopefully this is the last time B and C is in the news for anything other than being a fantastic, EXCELLENT staffed, speedy service pharmacy that also provides the warm feeling of a family business in a small town. These folks work too hard to provide us with excellent service, it's a classic story of evil taking advantage of kindness. Please help catch this goon~!
