  1. Wow these perps have balls these days… To go to a busy location like the Square and try to pull this off is pretty unreal. Usually the cops are lined up just outside those doors in the yellow section marked police only. Hopefully no one got hurt.

  2. Hey, no other paper reported this yet, great job on the scoop Jamie! 😉
