This is absolutely not a funny situation, but I couldn't help but laugh at that comment, Non-sense. :)

No actually it was Ultra Diamonds, located near Bed Bath and Beyond. Then the next day a man revealed a gun to a lady in Books a Million and asked her for money. And another jewelry store got hit for a bracelet all in the same week. Scary stuff going on.

Very scary. I shop at the Mills pretty often, and I see more and more police reports coming ouf of that area. Here's hoping they step up security, or ideally, that the "riff-raff" stays away.

Sadly, no one could blame you for feeling that way. I can say, though, that I've never seen anything happening while I've been there shopping.
