    Kum and Go, West Ames last night

    Does anyone know what happened at the Kum and Go off of Mortensen and South Dakota? I walked in like two minutes after what seemed to be a gun point robbery last night at about 12:30-1ish. I went to get an energy drink and the cashier seemed to be a little shook up and a cop (the one that has busted one of my parties) was interviewing him. I tried to listen in and I heard the cop ask for a description of a man and then heard him talk about surveillance tapes and such.

    The better question is, who still robs gas stations? Don't most of them only keep up to $50 cash in their stores?

    I heard an Iowa football player was in there last night....

    he'll probably be on their leadership council next year.

    That seems like a reasonable explanation. No idea why I hadn't thought of that. The cashier could of been shook up because he didn't get all the vehicle information and was scared of what the manager would do. But I didn't hear of any talk about license plates.

    I would think that gas stations have to keep more than $50 cash in their registers with the amount of people that withdraw cash when they pay with a debit card.

    That's likely it, according to the Ames Police "Press Log" under public information (City of Ames Police Department) Page 9.

    Cigarettes, 1,000s of dollars worth of smokes behind the counters with no locks. Take 20 cases sell them for half and you made some decent scratch.

    Maybe it's more than $50, but haven't you seen the signs as you walk in that say they only keep up to a certain dollar amount?

    I believe a lot of gas stations have safes though...

    Oh, well if the sign on the door says it, it must be true.

    if we're just speculating here, I'm gonna guess that someone came in and exposed themself to the cashier, made BM in one of the isles, then stole a half dozen of those pre made egg salad sandwhiches and a mickies forty.

    did you happen to hear any discussion between the cop and the cashier regarding a merkin? this could be very telling information in proving my theory correct...
