Why is any female carrying such a large amount of money alone?

Maybe she was the owner or something.

I would be surprised if the perpetrator wasn't seen on a surveillance camera.

Ex employee, or friends with some of the staff. Otherwise why would they know she was carrying so much money at that time, at that place...

This guy had some inside knowledge she would be carrying such a large sum of money.

Shouldn't discount an inside job/insurance scam.

Unguarded! Hope another bad guy won't rob her of her money one of these days.

It'll be the plot on the crime drama tv next month.
