Police responded Monday night to a report of an armed robbery at Conoco, 2447 W. Sixth Street.

According to Lawrence police Captain Ray Urbanek, a man entered the business carrying a long gun and stole money from the store.

Urbanek described the suspect as a black male in his 20s wearing dark shorts with white stripes and a gray tank top. The suspect is believed to be about 5-foot-6 and 150 pounds.

Police were unsure Monday night if the suspect fled from the premises on foot or in a vehicle.

The call came in to police at 9:31 p.m. and units were on scene minutes later. No further details were available Tuesday morning.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Lawrence Crime Stoppers hot line at 785-843-TIPS (8477).

Okay, I've heard this SO much, I'm going to ask.... does "editing" really encompass spell check? 'Cause I would have thought that was all automated by now. I'm currently on a computer that has corrected at least three spelling errors in this post alone.

Also, a picture would be nice. you would think, again, in this day and age, that pics from a security cam could be easily and quickly distributed to all media outlets allowing for a fast response and many "yes, I know this guy"s or "no, I have no clue"s.

Consumer1: are you insinuating that writers on the ljworld staff shouldn't have to/want to be professional? It's very hard to respect someone as a journalist/editor if they can't even spellcheck. Jkratzer3: perhaps they should have had more coffee.
