The robbery took place this past Saturday around 1:30 pm per police. We just got back last week and had actually walked Front Street past this location when we were in town. The link to the article provides some detail as well as a link to actual footage of the robbery. I love this Island as we go 2 times a year but this is just crazy.
Wow, that's so scary. I read the story earlier but didn't see the link to the video. The story said that the robber waived at the camera. It looked like to me the robber waived at the person headed up the stairs. It might be interesting to know who that person is.
Looked like the person on the stairs that he waved to was hiding to protect himself. Looks like they had plenty of time to grab what they wanted before any police or security presence. But there again the security can't be armed like the criminals are.
They need a second police office location in Phillipsburg. They used to have bike cops, but I know one was shot and killed during a jewelry heist, not sure if they are still using them. I would like to think the jewelry stores would be willing to pay for a better police presence there.
The police force is a joke. Front street is maybe a mile long put foot cops on a two block post every 5 blocks put a cop on a motor bike. use undercover cops to walk the street during high traffic times DJ <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/usflag.gif" alt="" />
