This guy has balls. Robbing the 7 eleven is like robbing the police headquarters. Gobyhere at night and it is full of cops. With that I am not surprised that he was not cought. The police wee probably sleeping where they usually hang out in the parking across the street.

That 7-11 consistently has the best Slurpee flavors on tap. Try a Coke/Pina Colada mix!

@Gregg, It was at this 7-11 i had the elusive Diet Pepsi slurpee, a Mug Root Beer slurpee, and a sprite slurpee. Best flavors by far. In all seriousness, how is this suspect still at large? Every time I go there, night and day, theres a cop there.
