It's going to be an absolute BREEZE to find this guy with all of the EXCELLENT surveillance footage we have seen! God knows there is NO ONE else fitting that description in this area!! And thank GOD all the stores on Long Island are ARMED!! This is PATHETIC. I love the way they give this "mystery guy" with the "mystery weapon" credit for FIFTEEN robberies in all different towns yet NOBODY knows what he LOOKS like.
