In the day and age of political correctness, I guess it is too much to expect a "real" description of the thieves. A description of their attire is ridiculous. Unless we expect them to NEVER CHANGE their clothes! A jewelry store was held up at gunpoint on Thurs. in LaGrange. NO DESCRIPTION given for them. Apparently they felt confident enough to go out and do it again 2 days later.
