Roanoke County Police arrested two young men in connection with an armed robbery from last week.
Investigators believe 18-year-old Brandon Christopher Thomas Maggi, of Salem, and 18-year-old Jonathan O'Meara, of Roanoke, worked together to rob the Stop Inn Food Store at 3809 Brambleton Avenue on Friday, March 22nd.
Around 3:30 a.m., police believe Maggi walked into the convenience store, took out a gun, and demanded money from the clerk on duty. Witnesses say Maggi had a pistol.
While Maggi was inside, police say O'Meara served as a lookout.
A plane attempting to land in stormy weather crashed on a small Taiwanese island late Wednesday, killing 47 people and wrecking houses and cars on the ground.
