Two Stores Robbed in Indiana
A pair of stores in the Missouri City, Ind., area, one a Walmart and the other a RadioShack, were robbed within minutes of each other, with one of the thefts leading to a greeter being "knocked flat." According to the FortBendNow.com Web site, the Walmart theft consisted of a man barreling out the store- and over a greeter- with a shopping cart. The RadioShack theft was carried out by three conspirators, who selected an HP laptop and Garmin GPS device, placed it on the counter for purchase, and then suddenly grabbed both and ran from the store.
