LOL....but I think is more than that for some reason. It's like Walgreen's is THE place to shoplift at and never mind the people who DON'T get caught I would imagine! You rarely ever read about these incidents at the CVS's or even the other Walgreen's in the heights. it is so weird.. Maybe our friends at the town hall should conduct a million dollar study!! That would be another good way to waste our tax money.

The Police should ascertain the whereabouts of Jill and Inthegloaming and whether the aisle hit hardest was the CANDY aisle! Had a yardman been out nearby with his gas powered blower there MIGHT have been a witness!
