Obviously this is not the Super Target Robber. Obviously this is not Josh either. He does not even look slightly like the many "Super Target Robber doppelgangers" seen recently at the Temecula Mall Area. And for your information Mr. Justice, I am not Mr Smith and I do not write comments like the ones above. Very rare for me to even say something negative about a person as such. Sometimes I do critisize an action or a comment by someone.

For your information there is a display of maybe 15 to 20 still wanted ID Posters displayed on the City of Murrieta Web site. This link may take you directly there. http://www.murrieta.org/services/police/alerts.asp The man in this story's picture looks nothing like the three young men that attempted a theft or robbery at circle a few months ago. But there are persons who used stolen credit cards, used conterfit $100 bills, stolen ID to withdraw/drain a mans bank account, and other bad behavior.

I have a suggestion. These stores in Murrieta and Temecula should be required to update their security cameras and recordings to give at least some sharp clear in-focus color photos at the entrances and exits.

Unfortunately, most small business owners have little or no interest in trying to identify criminals from their surveillance systems. These devices are mostly there for insurance obligations. To reduce liability from fraudulent claims of injury on the premises. Deterring crime is simply an afterthought. More theft occurs internally in these businesses than any shoplifting or robbery combined. The business owner would probably complain if an apprehension was made because it would result in numerous court appearances and out of pocket expenses.
