    Don't criminals know that modern technology has allowed business owners to place cameras so that people's faces can be caught on video? It never ceases to amaze me.

    Is this for really? These two just really stupid? They must want to get caught. Nothing to cover their faces and finger prints! They should be behind bars soon.
