Gotta be from Topeka.... Probably came to Lawrence for the driver check points that were on Friday evening. He was pissed because he wanted his check, and all he got was drivers license looked at. .

I saw a white male, light colored shirt and pants at Dillons. Was the suspect about 85 with a walker?

Maybe not if he jumped over the desk........

I bet it was a black guy who used a ton of foundation on his face to hide his identity, then put on the ski mask to really throw the cops off
