This morning as I was walking at the mall, which is my usual routine Tue/Thur, I was literally in the middle of a great story with my walking partner when we were approached by an official looking mall person, complete with walkie-talkie.
"Um, excuse me ladies but can you tell me where you're parked?" asked official mall person.
"Right outside Barnes & Noble" we replied, wondering what in the heck was going on.
"I need you to exit the mall immediately, thank you" she said as she turned and left.
Weirder still were the police cars at all the exits.
Weirder the most was the huge police car party parked at JC Penny's and the 30+ policeman who were being briefed before entering the mall.
Comforting? Not so much.
I didn't know what was going on until several hours later when the story broke that two suspects had been apprehended earlier for a mall break-in but one was still on the run and presumably somewhere in the mall.
Seriously people. I live in a small(ish) town for this very reason. Why do stupid people have to ruin everything?
I hope it warms up by Thursday cause this chickadee is now walking outside.
