What do people do when they want to ‘do the right thing’ because they know of a crime or have information that may help, but they are too close to the crime and are scared or fear retaliation?

Where does a parent go that loves their child but says in an anonymous tip “I just want him away from my daughter” referring to a fugitive sex offender wanted on a warrant in Texas but now in Minnesota?

How does a former drug dealer turn over a new leaf without incurring personal harm saying “I am scared to go there anymore I know they will hurt me”?

AT&T Store Robbery

2367

b2ap3_thumbnail_ATT-photos-1.PNGb2ap3_thumbnail_ATT-photos-2.PNG

Robbery of AT&T at 430 Crossroads Drive in Rochester, MN. Occurred August 23, 2016 at about 1230 pm, in a busy shopping center near a Highway that would lead to I-90.

Five suspects arrived together in a grey or silver Chevrolet Impala. They pulled around the rear of the store, then backed in to a parking spot in front of AT&T. There is no front plate on the car, and the rear plate is stolen TX plate GDW3527, which did not return through toll booths in Illinois. The driver did not exit the car.

The two males in the orange vests had the guns, and did most of the talking. One of them had a tattoo on the right or left side of his neck. The tattoo was a pair of red lips, and it was described as a poor quality tattoo without much detail. They were both young and thin, and an employee said they looked like brothers. They were in their 20’s or early 30’s. One of the men was wearing “painter’s pants” that were dark and covered in white paint.

The second two males were heavy set. They did not have guns, but did participate in the robbery. The male in the black tee shirt has a tattoo with writing on the back of his lower left arm. He appears to be shorter than the other suspects.
