There is way too much Main Line Crime and crime in Lower Merion (especially at the eastern ends of Lower Merion Township). Thank goodness no one was hurt, but these local businesses are part of our communities and neighbors and friends own a lot of them.

But hey, I am sure Lower Merion has a zoning overlay for this, right?

This is very upsetting. I can't recall a business being robbed at gunpoint.

The robbery of Govberg jewelers on Montgomery Ave, while it was still located a few doors north of Hymie's, in January, 2012, seems likely to have involved the use of arms. Few details were reported in a Main Line Times article.  Five men entered the store during business hours, smashed display cases, and ran off with the loot.  

Both of the recent early morning robberies of the new CVS on City Ave in Bala Cynwyd were armed robberies.  The CVS robberies occurred in May and June, 2012.

Yep, the 7th grade son of a friend was just recently robbed at gun point on Trent Road in Penn Wynne.

LMT is certainly not immune to armed robberies. There have been quite a few armed home invasions over the past several years.

And the LM side of City Line is a whole other isse. Armed robbery and shooting of suspect at 7-Eleven on City Line after several armed robberies of that same store over the years, armed robbery of a cell phone store on City Line, citizens robbed at gunpoint along City Line and Bala Ave...

This is carry over crime from Philadelphia. We need to be vigilant and be more observant of our suroundings.
