The store was in the middle of nowhere. Johnny also says that things were lying out in the open. The store would have been easy to steal from.

"Two-Bit shoulda been in that little one-horse store. Man, we're in the middle of nowhere; the nearest house is two miles away. Things were layin' out wide open, just waitin' for somebody slick like Two-Bit to come and pick 'em up. He coulda walked out with half the store." ch 5
