  1. looking for an armed man is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. if they were looking for a man with no arms im sure theyd soon catch him. could the staff not give a better description than the fact the robber had arms?
    foolish of the robber to rob this place anyway, can see from the first photo they have nothing on display and it seems a popular place for the police to visit… 5 of them there.
    under covid situation, he would have had to scan a qr code or write his name in a book as he entered the jewelry shop. surely they can identify him through that.
