Detective Bureau

  • The Detective Bureau reports that the afternoon shift investigated a robbery on March 29, 1999, from the Ames Plaza Liquor store in Derby. A subject entered the store and purchased an item when a store clerk noticed a bottle of liquor in his pocket. When the clerk questioned the subject he ran from the store. He was apprehended after a short pursuit by the clerk and the thief did fight with him then fled away on foot. Patrol officers did immediately investigate and were able to identify the robber. An unsuccessful search was conducted in the Highland/Derby area for him but did later obtain an arrest warrant through Evans Court. This subject was later picked up and charged with a felony robbery.
