Police seek robbery suspects

Henrico County Police need the public's assistance in locating two suspects who robbed a Hardees at 3815 Mechanicsville Turnpike April 22 at about 9:10 p.m.

The suspects, wearing masks and brandishing firearms, forced the shift supervisor into the office to unlock the safe. After taking the money from the safe, one suspect ran out of the back of the Hardees, behind the Auto Zone (towards Neale Street). The second suspect left the side entrance closest to Laburnum Avenue.

One suspect is described as a black male, between 20 and 25 years old, between 5 foot 5 and 5 foot 8, 140 to 145 pounds, wearing a black bomber jacket with a fur hood and orange inside lining, black pants and black gloves.

The second suspect is described as a white mail, 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 10, 140 to 145 pounds, wearing a black jacket, black pants, black gloves and a white/cream colored ski mask.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Henrico Police at 501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.

Patient First to offer free Halloween candy x-rays

Patient First will offer free digital X-ray imaging of Halloween candy at all neighborhood medical centers from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 29 through Oct. 31.

While an adult should always inspect candy before allowing a child to enjoy their trick-or-treating rewards, the free X-ray offer gives parents an additional precaution to consider and to provide peace of mind. X-rays may detect objects such as glass, metal or plastic; however, parents still need to provide supervision, since some foreign materials may not appear in x-rays. > Read more.
