That's a shame... The people at Kohlermans are so nice that if the man had a sick child and couldnt afford meds I bet Kohlermans would have helped if he had just asked.

highly doubt there is a sick baby. this kind of thing is routine down in Philly. just going to re sell it at some corner store somewhere.....I can't believe he was in Wawa and no one followed the guy out of there. No one saw where the guy went....right next door? Did they call the cops? No one followed the guy out of Kohlerman's? Where did he go? Jump in a car? Run off? This report also basically says that Kohlerman's has no security cameras in place.
