”The Family Dollar is not bothering anybody,” one customer said. “You know, find something else to do.”

Shoppers said the store was closed Sunday, so workers could clean up inside the store. The store re-opened Monday.

”I just kind of hate that because all the workers are so friendly,” another shopper said. “And you know this is a neighborhood store. Just came out this morning to grab some dog food. I come in here all the time, I know all the workers.”

LMPD said this is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to call LMPD’s anonymous tip line at (502) 574-LMPD (5673) or use the online crime tip portal.
