Don't get me wrong, Dollar General has money in the register, but it's probably not as much money as someplace else.  This particular Dollar Gener is located near Amarillo Blvd. on Western Street just north of 6th street. It shares a storefront with the American Council of the Blind Thrift store.  This area is usually busy.   If the suspect fled east, then he disappeared into the neighborhood behind the store.

It's possible this person lived in the area and realized it was an easy target.  Either way, it happened and it occurred.  Once again, we are left asking, when did the crime get so out of control in Amarillo?
