CWB readers may remember our story from last Friday in which we said some beat cops believed that two robberies the evening before were carried out by the same gunman. Area North detectives confirmed those suspicious by issuing a formal alert over the weekend.
Monday’s robbery took place about a block away from one of the crimes detailed in the police alert.
