Stay Put and Relax!

These are the words coming from a masked man robbing a mini-supermarket located at Navy Hill last week. A colleague shared his encounter face-to-face or should I say face-to-mask with the robber. The grocery store is located at the ground floor of their Apartelle near Miha Housing.

My colleague was carrying his laundry basket when he ran into the robber. "Drop it and relax!" shouted the masked man. My colleague did what he was told and crossed his arms to relax staring at the robber. He said the guy was about 5'6" tall and with strong accent.

This week's robbery was recorded through the store's security cam. He was wearing a mask too. Are we going to have this robbery every week? What can the police do? What can the community do? I guess nothing but to stay put and relax....

I'll bet you this isn't the first time this robber has robbed. Bet ya he's been through the court system already.

With regard to the Police doing something.. I am hopeful, but based on what I've seen over the past decade, unless he's turned in by a relative, pissed off girlfriend or merchandise he's stolen turns up at a pawnshop, he'll be around to strike again.

Police: Where have I seen that face before? Hmmm...Oh yeah at National Office Supply! It was sold at $9.95 per piece....

well I wouldn't worry too much. Reporters don't have too much of anything anyone wants. Now, if he started holding up politicians, he might find some bad checks.
