Larson parked the car in the lot behind the Mini Market where there were
no lights over the lot after closing, and he and Kirk got out and walked.
streets of Groomsburg were so quiet and deserted late on a weeknight that
Larson thought he probably could have parked in the middle of the street and
nobody would have noticed.
That was an exaggeration, but the store windows
along here had all been dark for hours. People in these old towns on the river
all seemed to get up with the sun, and go to bed with it too. The stop light at
the intersection ahead of them that blinked red in the daytime was blinking
Their destination was just past the light, so it wouldn’t be long. As they
walked closer, he and Kirk scanned the area for signs of life, and saw nothing
worth mentioning—no pedestrians, no headlights, nothing to worry about.
They walked up to the electronics store, past the sign that said, “Computers,
Phones, Warranty Repairs.”
The big problem with electronics stores was that every last one of them
had cameras recording everything that went on inside or outside. Larson and
Kirk never paused or looked up, so there wouldn’t be a recording of them
peering into the shop or anything.
They kept going past the window before
they turned and went down the side of the building toward the back. They put
on black face masks and Larson took out the roll of trash bags and peeled one
off before they emerged and stepped toward the back door. Larson looked
behind him and saw a car edged up to the rear of the building. What was that
doing in the alley? But it wasn’t a police car, it was empty, and not running,
so he didn’t let it distract him. He looked forward and saw Kirk standing
under the first security camera pointing up at it.
Larson joined him, squatted and let Kirk, who was only about 160
pounds, climb up onto his shoulders. Larson stood and waited while Kirk
slipped the trash bag over the camera and taped it closed with electrical tape.
Then Larson carried Kirk to the next camera and stood still while Kirk put
another bag over that camera and slid down to the pavement. Larson took out
the crowbar, stuck the flat end into the space beside the metal door, and pried
the door away from the jamb far enough to let Kirk push the blade of a
screwdriver in to depress the lock’s plunger and push the door inward.
As the door swung open, they were surprised to see lights on inside. They
both slipped in and Larson quickly swung the door closed behind them, but it
didn’t seem to fit right anymore, probably because the door had gotten bent a
little when he’d pried it aside. He saw a rubber doorstop on the floor, held the
door shut, and jammed the doorstop under it with his foot.
