    The suspects distracted the cashier by dropping money , when she reached to pick it up. One of them reached in and grabbed the money and they ran out the door. I’d like to say thank you to the Saltillo Police Dept for their quick response.I am the Store Manager and am very thankful that no one was injured just a very frightening experience.
