-Arnprior, Friday, December 18, 2009. And I thought the cold temperature was the story of the day.
Apparently, there was an armed robbery in town. Crime scene tape all around the bank, an unmarked truck that may have been a major crime scene investigation unit or something.
One OPP officer asked me through the door what I was doing with the camera. He seemed happy when I was concerned that no one was hurt.
An older woman walking South on John Street north saw somebody with a video camera, getting background shots for the local cable company (TVCOGECO) and asked him what was going on, I heard him whisper, “Apparently, there’s been an armed robbery.” “In Arnprior?” she gasped.
A younger woman’s face turned sour as she parked her car and crossed the street and wanted to go into the bank. The OPP Officer came out to where the tape ended and was speaking to her (I couldn’t hear anything) as I bundled my freezing fingers into my pockets with my camera and headed for the relative warmth of my vehicle.
