Curious members of the public watched police talk from their parked cars in Burger King’s lot.
“Every car that came through the drive-thru kept asking,” she said.
The fact that police haven’t located the NBT bank robber may have given some people the idea that they can get away with similar crimes, Delisle said.
“People think they can rob places now because they haven’t caught a bank robber,” Delisle said.
“I’m kind of getting nervous,” Sunshine Sunoco associate Kristen Bullock said.
Bullock was at the store’s register at the time of the robbery. Next to the cash register there are windows that give her a view of the the drugstore’s front doors, interrupted only by traffic.
But she didn’t see anything “more than usual.”
“We don’t expect that around here. This is Plattsburgh.”
Assisting with both the Walgreens and NBT Bank robberies are the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, Plattsburgh State University Police and New York State Police.
