Wait, It’s Not Halloween! Tweety Bird and Elmo Rob Convenience Store

December 21st, 2011

From our friends at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) comes this latest tale of a cowardly caper.  Last Friday, two teenagers, one dressed as Tweety Bird and one dressed as Elmo, robbed a convenience store in south Georgia.  They were apprehended shortly after.  This is the link to the article:

If you own a retail establishment or another business that handles cash, have you thought about what you would do if your business was robbed?  Having a good video surveillance system can help deter crime and can help identify the bad guys when a crime is committed.  Having silent duress or panic buttons installed and connected to your security system can help summon the police more quickly.

Be vigilant – you never know when Tweety and Elmo may come calling…
