    Wow. That’s a really clear picture of the suspect. Definitely just a matter of time.

    • Not Me

      It certainly helps that he looks directly into the camera in the third frame.

        It makes you wonder why they cut it off however. Looking at the other frames it appears the camera is able to view further to the left so I do not think he was simply out of frame. The dead on picture has just been cutoff for some reason?

    From a locked drawer too…

    Guess the employee on duty was having a smoke in the back or something.

    Local moms make money with this weird, old trick.

    According to commentors on here back when we had our murder spree, including the one at Eden Center, it’s 50 feet over the border into Falls Church so we shouldn’t care about this and it shouldn’t be on this site because this isn’t in Arlington. This story should be removed.

    How do you remove cash from a “locked draw” ??

    • Motumbo

      by opening it.

      • Columbo

        Well there is just one more thing about that “locked” drawer……

      • drax

        New question: how do you open a locked drawer?

  • Eric

    What is a “money transfer store”?

    • johnny b

      Kinda like Western Union.
      With the increase in ‘diversity’ in our nation came an increase of Money Transfer Stores, some specializing in certain countries. For a ‘fee’ they will transfer your cash to your relatives back home, and then they can afford to hire a coyote to get here as well…..repeat until all family members are here.

      • Louise

        Johnny’s half right but half wrong. The money is being wired, but most of it is going into the local economy. You can read articles about how the infrastructure in El Salvador has been greatly improved because of it. As far as using it to hire coyotes, yes, that’s done too-and I’d do it too if I were in their position. Be grateful you were born here and not in a developing country . . .

    Geez where can I go and buy one of those 10th Division shirts. This guy didn’t even bother trying to wear a yellow construction vest like the other thugs we read about.
