KCSD: Alpine Store Robbed

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Alpine Country Store, north of Hayden, late last night. Initial investigation indicates that a lone masked gunman entered the store at about 11 PM, held the clerk at gunpoint and had her empty the cash register of the currency.  The suspect fled on foot. A subsequent track by a Sheriff’s Department K-9 followed the suspect to where he may have got into a vehicle a short distance away. Sheriff’s detectives are continuing the investigation/Kootenai County Sheriff's Department news release.

Question: I've often thought that clerks at fast stops are among the bravest employees around because the possibility exists every day that someone will try to rob them. I wouldn't do the job. Would you?
