“I spoke with the Crime Unit Supervisor, Shawn Smith, at the Blooming Grove barracks," he said. "He said they are actively investigating the robbery, but there’s no update at the moment."
The message sent out to the community states: “Local law enforcement agencies have no involvement in the administration of the reward or any of its terms and conditions. The reward is being offered by the victims, Apple Valley Family Restaurant and Cash Masters, Inc.
