A thief threatened to cut the manager of Dollar General at 3120 Peach Orchard Road Tuesday after she was caught stealing from the store.

The manager told Richmond County Sheriff’s deputies that she confronted the woman about putting several items in her purse, a sheriff’s report said.

The woman pulled a box cutter from her purse and threatened to cut the manager if she wasn’t allowed to take the items, which included a small rug, a variety box of chips, a pack of gum balls and a box of candy.

The thief was described as being a black female wearing a gray jogging suit and a white T-shirt.

Does this shoplifting now

Does this shoplifting now become robbery since she threatened a store clerk with a weapon? And what's with the stuff she stole, a small rug, chips, candy & gum???? If she was stealing for resale, don't think these items will garner much money. If she's stealing because she has a compulsion to steal, then this might explain it.

Something does not sound

Something does not sound right. It's too cold to be wearing just a t-shirt and jogging pants this morning, and exactly how was the threat made? The box of chips and small rug seems like they would have been too bulky for a purse. Maybe this needs further investigation.

She probably was not finished

She probably was not finished when she was caught. My uncle use to be security at the old Southgate JM Fields store. You would not believe whay people try to get out of the store under their clothes,coats,etc. Most people just put the clothes,shoes on and leave with them.

This is why when you go to a grocery store, or Macys even they have all kinds of displays, etc towards the exits. They use these as theft deterrents, making it harder for the person who's running with merchandise to get out of the store. They have to weave around them LOL.

Which is why this manager

Which is why this manager should have had a nice, handy 9 mm on the hip. People like this are the trash of society. She should have been shot in her kneecap so that her collecting that check every month with her newly inflicted 'disability.' A nice limp for the rest of her life. MAKE ME NAUSEOUS... Tax dollars hard at work...3 Hot and a Cot...YOUR WELCOME...Make sure you ration those gumballs...they are a hot commodity in JAIL!

The franchise probably won't

The franchise probably won't allow employees to carry guns or put out the money for decent security, but a baseball bat would certainly trump a box cutter. It would be nice to have a picture or an artist's sketch of this vile animal.

If the gun is concealed, the franchise won't know if you're packing. At least you'd have it if needed. The worst that could happen is you'll lose your Mcjob at the dollar store vs. being cut or beaten by a robber.
