“You know what opportunity I see here. If petrol attendant were equipped with tear gas they could have thrown one or two canisters in the getaway vehicle. I promise you the police would have found them in that garage.”
“However, petrol attendants are the first persons to run for hiding. Pity they not trained for these incidents!”
“It looks like those guys ran on foot coz 1. Their car was damaged 2. They all couldn't fit in the car and therefore the doors couldn't close.”
“I have noticed that the fidelity security personnel take too long to do their job. The company MUST improve the time/period it takes for collection. In and out in a flash!!”
