  1. George says:

    Why do “business” people keep cash in their closed businesses?

  2. Randy says:

    When you open before the bank you need cash to make change.

  3. Det. John Kimble says:

    Getting broke into sucks. Period. But if it’s happened to you, over and over again, why not take the cash home with you at close or give to a trusted worker who opens up for you? Knowing that a business keeps money over night might lure in the losers who do this.
