This Week in Crime: Does this mean we have to stop using all caps?

For the second time in as many weeks the 7-11 on Soapstone Drive was robbed. But this time, police arrested two suspects, which means the MASSIVE CRIME WAVE just might be finally coming to an end.

An employee of the 7-Eleven store located at 2303 Soapstone Drive was robbed on Monday, October 27. The victim, a 48-year-old Reston man, was working behind the counter around 2:45 a.m. when a man entered the store, confronted him and demanded money. The victim refused and the suspect displayed a handgun, grabbed several items from the store and fled. The victim was not injured.
On Monday, October 27, two Reston men were arrested for the robbery at Soapstone Drive around 2:45 a.m. earlier that day. Both men were transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and were also charged with a robbery that occurred on Sunday, October 19 at the same 7-Eleven store.

  1. Jerkoffs. Hopefully this will count as "Strike 1" and "Strike 2" against both. More likely "Strike 27" and "Strike 28", but you get my point.
