Brazen robberies have Roanoke police tracking crime trends

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE - Roanoke City police are keeping a close eye on crime trends. Specifically, a recent rash of brazen robberies.

On Monday, police said two men came into the Turbo Food Mart armed with knives and demanded money.

Last week, officers arrested a man for alleged trying to rob a Roanoke convenience store for cash and condoms. The robbery went awry when the store clerk shot the man.

Officers are advising store owners to be cautious. Police also suggest that large advertisements be moved from windows because they prevent people from seeing inside the store.
