BEWARE Gas Customers


This was posted to my Facebook page:

PLEASE BE ALERT anyone in the GREECE/HILTON area... two young males were getting gas at the Sunoco @ Latta Rd & North Greece this evening around 6 PM and had two black men approach their car with knives. Luckily neither of the two males had gotten out of the car yet and also it was still in gear, they were able to pull away....but not before one of the men pounded the knife on the windshield breaking it. The Police said its not the first time it has happened in this area either, it also happened at Pontillo's down the street. You should also know this gas station owner did not want to be involved and did not want to provide any surveillance tapes to help the police out.

Sadly, without the cooperation of people like the gas tation owner, incidents like this will continue to increase. what a loser!

To 8:27PM ~~ Yuuuuup. Maybe a lawyer for the victims could get the video subpoenaed ...?

Did GPD post it to your facebook page? Lol. Wishful thinking.

SCATS said...

To 8:51PM ~~ Wish for whatever you like. If you were a friend on Facebook, you'd have your answer maybe ;)

The current owner of said station is still using the video system that was installed when the place was K&K.

Much like the video systems at GCSD, the system in that station is so crapped out there are no recorded pictures to be had.

Is there any reason to believe that this story is true?

This could just be somebody with an axe to grind against the service station owner.

SCATS said...

To 12:41PM ~~ If I didn't have reason to believe it was true, I wouldn't have posted it. Feel free to go get your gas though ;)

I was the original poster of this info. It was posted to my facebook from numerous friends as this is my neighborhood. I did not repost it immediately as I was unsure of the validity of the post. Ten hours later a friend posted that she drove by the next day and there were 6 police cars in the parking lot (I felt this adult does not make stories up)and also reading the other posts from people who know the victims. Take it for what its worth, I won't be getting gas there and I don't have an ax to grind with the owner.

scat, is it true that if someone argues with you on Facebook, you "unfriend" them?

1156: You know that for a fact? Or are you just assuming that there are no pictures of the incident? How do you know?

Anonymous said...

Oh c'mon, scat, are you seriously trying to say that you don't post things on here that you aren't confident are true??

SCATS said...

To 2:32PM ~~ If you want future comments posted, you will use the correct name, which is SCATS. I unfriend anyone who doesn't stop posting swearing, racist and other such "unfriendly" comments after ONE warning and deletion of the first offensive remark. Got a problem with my standards?

To 2:41PM ~~ I'm confident of MY posts/BLOGs. Comments are a different story.

Nothing but HEAR SAY here plain and sImple. Business as usual on this site. Comfirmation of the alleged incident does not exist so how can you say you are confident of your post..?

SCATS said...

To 4:06PM ~~ I'm confident of my source :)

It's actually funny to see how often a BLOG post BECOMES headline news by 5PM in Greece :D

GPD is posting comments about Hearsay, yet again SCATS. I am laughing hysterically because I find them so amusing. Their job is to serve and protect not HIDE and Protect their own (behinds) like they usually do.

SCATS said...

To 4:25PM ~~ Great minds think alike ;) I assume it was someone from GPD who posted at 4:06PM as well.

Anonymous said...

I am the one who originally posted it to FB. That other person is not telling the truth.

SCATS said...

To 11:16PM ~~ Of course no one knows who you mean by "that other person" at this point in time ;) ... not that it matters any more.

Something is missing in the narrative... if the miscreants were out to rob the customers, they would have waited for the customers to begin pumping their gas. And if this same sort of thing happened at Pontillo's, then it doesn't seem like a simple mistake in timing on the part of the knifemen. Perhaps someone is trying to establish turf and shake down businesses for protection? Scare away customers until they are paid?

Did you know that the Chief sends out an e-mail blast to all the neighborhood watch captains alerting them to crime. And alot of the time--information is lacking. So as usual SCATS, you are right on the money with this one. SO GPD can say Hear Say all that want.

SCATS said...

To 10:31AM ~~ Of course info is lacking. We've got to get Greece back to one of America's "safest cities" ya know?

I laugh every time I read a "police reports" column for Greece. Motably absent from those reports are ANY kind of trouble in the vicinity of the new Walmart ... at least since SCATS pointed out how many crimes appeared right after it opened.

If anyone wants to get an accurate idea of what kind of crimes are going on in Greece, then spend an afternoon watching the thugs get processed through Greece Town court. Of course, these are only the cases where someone has been caught.

To 11:16- I assume you are referring to my post at 8:18. I did not say I was the original FB poster. I said I was the original poster of this info. (in reference to the SCATS BLOG/FB) If you read my post clearly, it states it was posted to my facebook page. So go back and reread my comment, I was not trying to steal your fame.

The problem with the station at NG & Latta is that the owner does not provide sufficient hospitality to UNION members on the Town payroll.

Legislator Rainbow don't like that place either, he can't buy it or collect rent from it.

Now drive over to Manitou & Frisbee Hill and you see a completely different operation. Large parking area sufficient to accommodate multiple police agency vehicles and Town Trucks. No problems at Stevies place, hot & cold running cops nearly around the clock.

Even the junior criminals who didn't get shot know to leave Stevie alone. Stevie don't even give cops free doughnuts.

If this even REALLY happened as described on here, wouldn't it have to be "officially" documented/reported SOMEWHERE other than on here? Just curious. Where can we go to look?

SCATS said...

To 1:53PM ~~ The incident I posted about was printed in the D&C's police reports column for Greece this week. I posted a new BLOG with a link to that this morning ;)

Anonymous said...

SCATS, where is this "new BLOG," so I can find the link? Thank you.

SCATS said...

To 3:59PM ~~ Exactly where all new BLOGs appear: on the front page of this site.

Anonymous said...

Not sure if t's because I'm looking at this site on my phone or not, but I don't see any "link to the D&C's police reports column. Can't you just repeat the link here to make things easy for us? Thank you.

SCATS said...

To 9:48PM ~~ It's right there at the bottom, where it says "SOURCE: D&C" The "D&C" is in blue, denoting a link.

You might have to buy a subscription to the D&C to read it too.
