Grocery store robber strikes again in Poland Township

Published: Thu, June 26, 2008 @ 1:18 p.m.

POLAND — Police suspect that the same man who robbed grocery stores in Howland, Hubbard and Columbiana was responsible for a robbery at Giant Eagle here on Monday.

Police said that the man came into the store at about 8:45 p.m. and walked to the checkout line to pay for a package of Tic-Tacs. He gave the cashier $2 to pay for the mints and when the cashier opened the register to get the man’s change, he reached into the cash drawer, grabbing more than $1,200, and ran from the store.

The store’s video security footage was reviewed and the man matches the basic description of the suspect of the other robberies, said Brian Goodin, Poland Township police chief. Police are continuing to look for the man after a search of the area with Beaver police dogs yielded no results.

Why wouldn't you put the guys description in the article? Isn't that a key part of the story? You and your newspaper are a bunch of hacks.

I’m sorry, I just can’t help it when given a straight line like “after a search of the area with Beaver police dogs”.

If your chasing beavers, I guess a beaver police dog would be appropriate. Does this mean the criminal has big teeth, a proportionally large flat tail and a lustrous silky coat? I would have guessed the description would have been quite different. Since the Vindy declines to include a description, it is up to you to determine what kind of dog would be appropriate.

Is this criminal taking the Geico squirrel activity to the next level?

They are refering to Beaver township police dogs.

I decline to reference your moniker, that could be interpreted as a personal attack.

My previous post was for the humor value. That is why I referred to the “straight line”. Relax, loosen up and learn to read between the lines. It will serve you well in the future.

You need to anticipate alternative implied colloquialisms. “And that’s all I have to say about that”.

Way to stay on top of things Vindy. Where is the description of the suspect. Your newspaper if worse than a high school journalism class' attempt of reporting.

I'm almost sure that the Vindicator has a policy of only printing descriptions if they are given on the police report in full detail (meaning height, weight, age, race, hair color, defining features, etc). If the paper printed only the vaguest descriptions, then multiple people could be accused of crimes that they didn't commit. The police report probably didn't give a full description, which is why it wasn't given in the news brief. The reason there isn't a full description? Probably because the police only have video security footage and if anyone's every seen that, it's hard to make out a full description.

Oh, and I think the post above me meant to write: "your newspaper is worse..."
