    $194,845 smackers = better than the usu haul from a bk robbery.

    After keeping bk mgr's wife & 2 children hostage overnight, and forcing bk mgr to get the $ and return home, how did they think they were going to get away w it, well ultimately?
    I'm thankful that entire fam was released unharmed. Could have ended verrrrry badly for the fam.
    Personally hoping convictions result for the perps.

    And a big thank you to whoever called FBI tip line after sketch was made public.

    And TYVM OkieGranny for keeping us updated on so many threads.
