Well after 30 years the police finally caught a bad guy. Every time I had break ins or stolen stuff it went by the way side.
Well Sunday at 12:20pm a Hispanic kid drives the lot and pulls in bay next to street. Faces the back drive. Gets out of his truck with a shoot gun. Goes over to the next bay and points it at a customer in that bay and robs him. I would say that the kid had some smarts as he picked the only 2 bays that only had 1 camera in each. But he was stupid as during the robbery at the back of the bay he stood right in front of my tag reader camera and their is a very good picture of him. The police called and wanted copy of video. They had all ready caught him about 20 minutes after he left wash. The video will show him in the act with the gun in his hand. Now I just wonder if I will get any justice for myself as when he jumped in truck, he hit to the ground my post at the end of the bay wall. How much do you want to bet that it gets set by the way side. Go figure.

These kinds of situations are "no joke". Late breaking news less than a mile away from us: http://bismarcktribune.com/news/local/bismarck/bismarck-officer-kills-mandan-man-in-shotgun-incident/article_dce8a535-63a4-5401-a45a-789ef2c16e98.html

Another just happened potentially lethal violent incident a couple of blocks from a brand new 24/7 self serve & express auto car wash (not ours) ... http://bismarcktribune.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/two-arrested-following-alleged-assault/article_1e4e7aa1-2145-5c25-abd7-ab090ae2dd83.html

Just a note for all owners & employees of car washes: It is a good idea for all of us to have some first aid training ... based on a recent horrific local stabbing where the person could have easily died ... had there not been a pro-active person there ... to apply pressure on the throat gash where the blood was gushing out!
