On Tuesday posted a story about the rising crime against businesses.
Now the T-D is reporting that two downtown businesses were robbed at gun-point yesterday. “Two men robbed the Limited Edition store at 302 Goshen St., near Virginia Commonwealth University, at about 12:25 p.m.,” writes Michael Martz. At about 4 p.m. yesterday, a man and a woman robbed The Hook Up at 325 W. Broad St.”
Also, two suspects in a robbery earlier in the week in Carytown have been apprehended. “Police said today they have charged Corey A. Thomas, 30, of the 1900 block of Bloom Lane, with Monday’s robbery and felonious use of a firearm in the robbery of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream in Carytown.”
Question: should store owners keep a fire arm on the premises?
