“Crime prevention and crime suppression is not something the police force can do by itself," said Temple P.D Corporal Chris Wilcox. "It takes everybody. It’s a combined effort. The 60-thousand pairs of eyes are much more powerful then 130 pairs of eyes (of the police.)”
The Temple Police Department is looking into whether this robbery may be related to a string of robberies that
occurred in late 2011 and the beginning of this year.
