HEROIN HIGHWAY TO HELL: Clerk looked down the barrel of a gun as thug demanded cash

Others include early morning risers wanting to pick up a cup of good coffee. Then there are the special breed of those who are in need of a fix of heroin and rush down with a gun to swoop some cash out of the register while the terrified clerk wonders if another day will dawn or that will be the day that the grim reaper calls.
