"Crime Stats Up Over weekend"

Crime wave weekend

POLICE were called to 152 incidents – including an armed robbery at a convenience store – as officers faced a ‘phenomenally busy’ weekend of crime.
A cashier was threatened with a wheel brace at the Spar store on Colomberie at 7.10 am yesterday before the thief ran off with an undisclosed amount of alcohol.
Eight police cars were called to the scene and arrested a man on suspicion of robbery just half an hour later.
The level of callouts was nearly four times the average of 40 incidents that usually happen between 5 pm on Friday and 7 am on Monday.
