    Oh, those crazy Mormons…

    I go to this maverick all the time, scary. I really need to get on the ball and get my concealed carry. Never know when you need to be armed.

    What does religion have to do with anything? sacastic much?

    The middle picture, as the person is walking, looks feminine. Are they certain it is a man? My first thought when I saw the pictures, it’s a female.

  • Happy happy happy September 6, 2013 at 8:20 am

    My first thought when seeing the pictures was the person looked like a female as well.. The clothes are really baggy and I agree with Diane the middle picture looks feminine as the person is walking…

    I’m sure if the voice telling the cashier to give them all their money was female, they would have mentioned it…

  • JOSH DALTON September 6, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Diane I agree! I think its a female! its a Rockstar bag I think.That further leads me to believe its a female. Its a trendy fashion statement to have a Rockstar Tote bag. If you also notice the baggy pants statigicaly yet fashionably placed over “her” white shoes. If in fact you visit any Mavrick at 3:00am or any other gas station there is a slight chance its going to get robbed while you are there. unless you drive truck or on a road trip a gas station in no place for anybody aywhere in the country at 3:00am.

    I’m a frequent late night shopper at that maverick. The guy that works graveyard isn’t the brightest crayon in the box and he’s rude. I’m sure I’m not the only one he’s offended with his crappy comments because I need a late night snickers. I’m sure that guy either really didn’t pick up on her feminine features or he didn’t want to admit in this very manly state of utah that he was held up by a girl. No man in this state wears shoes that white or bandana that clean to a robbery.

    • Ken September 7, 2013 at 8:05 am

      You mean sharpest crayon in the box and yes I know what you mean when you describe him and his antics!

  • Sweet Jude September 7, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Wow, some people’s kids……

    If you all think that’s a woman simply by the way the person is walking, you must be chewing on metal or something. There is no freakin’ way to tell a person’s gender if you can’t see them walking unless you see it in a video. Definely not by photos. I’m sure you all love to jump on the bandwagon just so you can agree with one another! You must get an education and learn to think like adults before commenting.

    Thanks!

      Dunno,I guess you have been trained in video forensics? Well, I have…has nothing to do with a band wagon. Was it you? I would assume that you are female! that makes you a suspect in my book. Atleast we know it was not a black guy. So that rules me out as a suspect…FOR ONCE!! GO FALCONS!

      • Sweet Jude September 8, 2013 at 7:16 pm

        Nice try, Josh. Wasn’t me either, you can rule me out as a suspect as well…but I know for sure this woman thing is so elementary-like of folks to say. Something that has nothing to do with forensics or any field for that matter.

        Y-E-A-HHHH, go falcons! Who knows, maybe the robber was a falcon fan?
