Shabbos morning at 5:00 a group of 4 males of mixed races walked passed the Kol-Tuv grocery store and began planning their robbery, they walked back and fourth for more then a half an hour, during which they had cut the gate [at appx. 5:28] then continued walking back and fourth.
At 5:30 one of the group actually got into the store. Now contrary to what has been reported by other news sources, the alarm had been functioning properly, the reason it did not go off immediately was since the expansion of the grocery they had demolished a wall, and on that wall there was an alarm sensor mounted, it had been moved from its proper position rendering it useless.
A point I would point out is the thief’s stupidity, on countless occasions throughout their robbery you can clearly see them looking at the cameras, and its not like these cameras are hidden in any way.
At 5:29am one of the group went into the store through the hole he had cut in the gate earlier and was in the store for a total of 1 minute, during the time you see him behind the counter looking for valuables and trying to get into the cash register, then the alarm gose off and he panics so he grabs a few calling cards of the wall and runs, on the outside cameras you can see all of them running.
From the cash register all thy got were some bills left over in there and the calling cars which all together amount to no more then $1500 at the most.
