Terry's Country Corner store in Moneta is usually a quiet place, but recently it's been the target of several incidents.

Bedford County Police are looking for a man who stole two knives, $150 worth of merchandise, from the store on Thursday.

"We just have to be more alert is the main thing," says owner, Bob Terry. "A lot of people don't pay attention to it but I think now they're beginning to take note of what's happening."
