    Check with all the local “2” hospitals…and see who was just released that had either head surgery…or an head accident.
    Start from there. Do we have to tell you everything?!!!!

    That’s a very good picture of the suspect. If you’re worried about being robbed and want to use video surveillance to capture crooks, why not invest in a better camera? Even if this guy wasn’t wearing a bandanna over his face, you still wouldn’t be able to make out any details at all.
