Friends and Family,
I am sure some of you have already heard but I wanted to let you all know, from us, what happened at the liquor store on Wednesday July 1 at 9:00 pm. Two tall, young black men came into the store, 1 with a bandana covering his face and a sawed off shotgun, 1 with a white halloween mask and a bag. The one with the gun told Tina it was a robbery and to give him all of the money, which she did. The other put 4 1/2 gallons of Hennesy into his bag and then asked her where all of the cartoons of Newport 100's were. She pointed and he grabbed all that were in sight. They then left and ran behind the store and took off in a car that was parked in the Lawyers Hill Apartment parking lot. Because of the distance and the darkness the make, model, and color of the car are unknown. There were about 6 customers in the store at the time. Thankfully no one was hurt just shaken up. The detectives took statements from all involved and dusted for prints, but none were recovered. I will keep you up to date if we receive anymore information. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone else because maybe someone was in the area at the time and can give us more information.
Tom and Cindy
