The New York Post reports that at 10pm on Sunday night, two employees at the Bowery Whole Foods were robbed of $26,000. The workers were apparently wheeling the cash in a grocery cart up to the second floor; "when the elevator doors opened on the second floor, the two thieves—one armed with a gun—were already waiting and forced the workers to [the] ground before grabbing the money."
One employee told the Post that it could have been an inside job. "They ran from the receiving door which no one outside the store knows about. They know parts of the store that we only know." That part hasn't been confirmed by the market.
