Henrico Police seek robbery suspect


Henrico Police are seeking a man who robbed a business in the 4700 block of Finlay Street in Eastern Henrico April 15, then apparently returned to the same business April 18 and attempted to enter it again.

The victim complied and the suspect fled the business but left a suspicious item behind. The surrounding businesses were evacuated and the Henrico Explosive Ordinance Unit responded and determined the item was inert. > Read more.

Lawmakers reconvene for ‘veto session’


Virginia legislators will return to the state Capitol April 20 to consider whether to uphold or override Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s vetoes and recommendations of legislation passed during their 2016 session.

The Democratic governor vetoed 32 bills approved by the Republican-controlled General Assembly. That is the most vetoes since 1998, when Jim Gilmore, a Republican, was governor and most legislators were Democrats.

McAuliffe objected to a slew of hot-button bills – from a measure that would allow some school security officers to carry guns on the job, to the so-called “Tebow Bills” that would allow home-schoolers to participate in high school sports. > Read more.
