wow, what about the hardware

wow, what about the hardware store in holden beach lot of people want to know why did the robbery there at that store get pushed under the rug? may be a interview with ann or nadien or maybe kevin would make the police look a little harder for their robber. just a concerned customer, love to hear that they finally caught the guys.


I dont know about the hardware store. However, maybe the bank robbery issue didnt get by because BANK ROBBERIES ARE UNDER FBI JURISDICTION. Locals can apprehend the suspect, and shes being held in a local jail sure, but the FBI will be the ones to complete the investigation and prosecute.
