  • by bikerdawg Location: valdosta on Jan 3, 2012 at 10:44 PM you own a map? That store is downtown Valdosta and is 5 miles from the interstate through heavy traffic. It is NOT as you say "right off the I75 exit ramp"....if so than ALL of Valdosta is closer and would be a "BullsEye for crime". LOL!

    That store is a BullsEye for crime. It's right off the I75 exit ramp,in a dark remote location.

    Wow, this dude could have profited from a few moments with Willie Sutton. Willie would have noted that the Dollar General is where the money ain't.

    (1) round up the usual suspects...grade school and middle school drop-outs. (2) add to the group unemployed laborers (3) add to the group anyone with an IQ below 90. Who robs Dollar General Stores??? Pick anyone in any of the above groups! Then add in all the narcotics addicts and you'll have a decent pool of likely perps.
