Armed Robberies Strike Local Businesses 

Local authorities were summoned to two separate armed robbery incidents on the evenings of Monday, November 27, 2023, and Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
The first incident unfolded around 8:50 pm at the Shady Nook Truck Stop at 16774 Highway 61 North. A clerk at the establishment reported a distressing encounter with an unidentified male. The perpetrator was described as a black male approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a black hoodie, pants, shoes, and face mask. The armed robber brandished a weapon, coercing the clerk to surrender both cash and Black and Mild Cigars. Following compliance, the suspect swiftly fled the scene in a white vehicle, heading south.
The unsettling trend continued on the following night at approximately 12:56 am when law enforcement responded to an armed robbery at the Double Quick Convenient Store, located at 1909 North State Street. This time, the assailant wielded a long gun wrapped in a sheet. The clerk was compelled to hand over money from the registers, complying with the robber’s demands. The suspect, described as a black male standing at 5 feet 7 inches, concealed his identity with a black ski mask and wore a navy blue puffy coat. Unlike the previous incident, the robber abandoned the scene on foot, leaving the parking lot.
