Maybe the loot can be given to the injured girl at Jenny's Market.

Oh, I get it because many people are in and out paying insurance with cash. Glad to hear no one was injured. Not surprised that this robbery was commited by a woman, being black or white. (Color doesn't make a person commit robberies).. I do hope this person will be caught and arrested. Good Luck WCPD!

Black and wearing a tan sweatshirt. Well, that will be a tremendous help, seeing as we live in a racially homogenous area in a tropical climate.

I don't get it....robbing an insurance office makes as much sense to me as the 'Dollar' Store much can these places have on hand?

The Look is one of those quick proof of insurance places for folks who for whatever reason can't or just don't carry insurance. It's very likely they would have cash on hand.
