A black male, approximately 6’00” tall, 30-35 years old, entered a Petro station, requested a calling card, and while the owner was distracted with looking for the calling card, the suspect reached behind the counter to where the deposit was being counted earlier, and took part of the deposit.

Please remember, Crime Stoppers wants your information, not your name. You could be eligible for a reward.

    @Really: I’ve never said I feel it is right to steal under ANY circumstances. My point is you are pretty darn stupid as an owner to not know how to be safe and reduce the temptations you place out there for criminals. Some crimes can be prevented if victims pay better attention to awareness of their own actions and surroundings.

    To Jake, What do you mean a black male? I see just as many whites, hispanics and other races committing similiar crimes or even worse. Stop it with the racist comments!!! They all need to stop the ignorance!!!

    I could maybe understand a dumb store clerk, but an OWNER being so stupid to count cash for a deposit, within arms length of a customer across a counter?! Hate to guess, but probably another Patel, who opened a business with one of the FREE government loans given to immigrants welcomed to the US.

      Bottom line here is that this is not his money. It should not matter who is counting the money or who owns the store what matters is this thief is taking what is not his. Lets not make this about anything but the thief stealing and making it sound as though he has a right to do this.

      The owner's "stupidity" doesn't give this thief the right to steal what is not his.

    see what type of dumb decisions people make when they are allowed to play their car stereos so loud? Proctor, here is one of your "constituents" taking what is not his because his stereo has ruined his hearing. He never hears the alarm clock to get up for work.

        Hello David, It was meant as a bit of humor, but now that I read again, it it does work.

    The usual black thug! You know they think they are owed something, so they just take it.

    That's a good clear picture. I say he'll be in jail by Saturday. These fools are too stupid to leave town. Once the cops figure who this guy is, they'll just go over to his mother's house and pick him up.

        I didnt see anything thing about them being black. There are white people who look like that and would probably do the same thing. Get a clue. It is not always about race.
