    Does anyone else think this is suspicious? If it’s true, the deliveryman is an imbecile. Who carries $600 on them to make deliverys in Holyoke? Do you need $600 to make change? This sounds like BS to me. The alleged robber never even showed a gun, and he handed over $600??
    It is either BS, or the driver is so stupid he deserves this.
