Not a good sign

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
It's never a good sign when you go to pull into a truck stop and there are 3 police cars in front of the store, one sitting at each entrance, and one out back.

That was the case when I stopped at "The Hitchin' Post" in Huntsville, TX, this morning. I stopped on the fuel island and went inside to get a Coke. The clerk was busy filling out a report. She said they had just been robbed. She said the robber had a 9 mm and appeared to be "a little slow."

You'd have to be a little slow to pull out a gun almost anywhere in Texas. But this one really takes the cake; the Hitchin' Post shares a fence with the Texas State Penitentiary! This is the location of Death Row in Texas.

My niece would agree. She was in a store just as the guy was holding it up.

Maybe this small town life isn't so bad after all. Last time we had three police cars where I work it was to figure out what to do with a cranky Alzheimers patient who had escaped his caretaker. We did have some men in today who looked like they were thinking about it until they looked in the banquet room. It was full of deputy's who would have LOVED an excuse to get out of that meeting! The way the one guy kept hanging out at the cash register I was glad they were in the meeting, I hardly think it was me he was interested in. I think we have maybe three armed robberies a year in this town, and none at my job in years.
I'm glad no one was hurt. At least when they catch and convict this slow robber he'll be in familiar territory!
