Clarksdale’s crime wave continues. Over the weekend police responded to two auto burglaries, a residential burglary and an armed robbery in which cash was taken from the Dollar Tree store on South State Street. It’s the city’s second armed robbery in a less than a week; last Wednesday morning three men assaulted the owner of a pawn shop smashing display cases and stealing handguns, jewelry and cash before leaving the scene in a silver Honda sedan. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations are still working on that case. A reward of up to $12,500 is being offered for information leading arrests of the suspects.
