Let your Amityville village Pd know. That is a Amityville school and in their district. That store has had problems in the past, it is a shame. I know that at one time they changed their store hours to 11am to try and stop things like this happening.These knuckle heads are going to make a big mistake doing robberies in a town that has the most number of NYPD officers living it who carry off duty weapons. A bank robber was shot dead years ago by a retired NYPD cop at Bank of America on sunrise highway. They are going to pick the wrong stores one of these times.
