Skimpy police reports disputed

From The Post and Courier:

On the night of Jan. 8, a trio of robbers burst into a popular supermarket in suburban West Ashley (SC) and held terrified employees at gunpoint while they plundered cash from the store's safe.

The official police report — which the public can obtain at the police records office — offers just a one-line summary stating that an officer was sent to Publix in reference to a robbery. No details at all on the suspects, what they did or even how many robbers were involved.
