Last night, owner of BJ’s Drug, Barney Joseph, was held at gunpoint by two men in ski masks. 25 years prior his father was shot and killed at the same store.
The unidentified robbers stole $382.65 from the register. Joseph did not feel like he needed to use the gun under the counter. The robbery lasted less than a minute.
When asked about his father, Joseph said “Yes, Dad resisted, I guess. Anyway, they found him shot to death, his own gun in his hand, and a bullet in the store’s ceiling. I’d rather part with my money than my life.”
