The story about the Walmart armed robbery received a lot of views and comments on the Elk Grove Laguna Forums Facebook page and has many residents concerned and upset at the recent incidents at local stores. On Thursday a shopper at Raley’s was pushed into the store shelves and had her wallet stolen from her purse. There was another incident at the same Walmart involving a man throwing bottles at people, as well as incidents at Winco too.
