You guys might want to get a camera or a security guard or something

Man, from what I've seen of security video reviewed on various episodes of COPS, it's tougher to steal from convenience stores in small towns in Virginia:
Thieves stole four diamonds worth several million dollars from a trader's stand at the world's biggest watch and jewelry fair in Basel on Wednesday, prosecutors said.

"Three men engaged the staff in a sales talk while one or two others opened the showcase," said Markus Melzl, spokesman for the Basel prosecutor's office. "These were real pros who had done some research ahead."
Whereas the staff entrusted with millions of dollars worth of merchandise were apparently a few people hired by a temp agency who had never been around anything of value before and should subsequently never be trusted with looking after so much as a single shiny penny.
