3. Will they catch them?
Ralph and Joseph are still talking about the hold-up.
Joseph: Do you think the police will catch the raiders?
Ralph: I don’t know. They said there had been a spate of robberies in the area recently. Chances
are it wasn’t the first time those two had robbed a store. The police said they’d compare CCTV footage of similar hold-ups and see if they could get any leads. Joseph: Quite a haul, £5,000, isn’t it? Ralph: Not bad for 90 seconds. That’s all it took.
Joseph: I feel sorry for the cashier. Ralph: Yeah, me, too. I’m still shaking, and I wasn’t the one who had a gun held in my face. Joseph: I suppose there’s not much shopkeepers can do to safeguard against robberies. Ralph: Not really.
