Before Hold Up, Man Gets Plenty of Face Time on Shell Surveillance Camera

A couple of days ago, the Dallas Police Department posted this video of a man taking his sweet time to play stick-'em-up at the the Shell station at 13910 N. Central Expressway at 9:13 p.m on June 12. Says Det. Martha Sanders this a.m., the guy's also wanted in conjunction with a robbery on the same day at a gas station on Lake June Road. He's pretty easy to ID -- he's patient, if nothing else. And is it just me, or does everyone in the store seem kinda, well, low-key about and bemused by the whole affair after the guy leaves? --Robert Wilonsky
