|The 911 call|
The transcript (edited for length) of the 911 call made from the jewelry store being robbed by Jeff Reardon to the Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., police department.
Caller: Yes, Hamilton Jewelers in the Gardens Mall we're being robbed.
Operator: OK, tell me what's going on
Caller: There's a guy who just gave us a note, it's a note that says something, "I have a gun, please get me the key and put things in this bag."
Operator: OK, he gave you a note stating, what did he look like? White male?
Caller: He's a white male
Operator: He said he had a gun?
Caller: Yes. He has a note that he just handed my manager. I saw part of the note.
Operator: And what did he ask for?
Caller: I don't know. My manager just mouthed to me, "Quick call the police, quickly."
Operator: OK, we're on the way, I just need you to tell me
Caller: He's a tall guy, I'd say he's about 6-foot-3.
Operator: And he has a beard?
Caller: He has a beard, kind of disheveled looking.
Operator: But you don't know what he asked for?
Caller: No I don't, no I don't [sighs]. It said, "Get a key and put something in the bag"
Operator: It said what?
Caller: "Get a key and put something in the bag"
Operator: Get a key?
Caller: And put something in the bag.
