he should have known that LIRR sucks and his getaway train wasn't going to be on time... wonder if he stole enough to pay for his train ticket...

Yeah great job SCPD, you've ignored the prescription pill epidemic and did not attack heroin in a pro active way so it is infesting the Island. Great job!!!! Every town is falling like a Domino , they have absolutely no presence on the Island at all. Great job at stealing at least 200k a year!
