Merchant’s Lane Robbery Still Under Investigation By Guy Leonard Staff Writer The deputy assigned to the Town of Leonardtown told the town commis- sioners Monday that detectives are con- tinuing to investigate the armed robbery that took place at a liquor store on Mer- chant’s Lane in December. “They have some leads,” Cpl. Kristi Nelson told town leaders. “That’s all I can say.” Town leaders were concerned when the armed robbery took place since those types of offenses rarely happened in town limits and at places of business. Mayor Dan Burris speculated that the nature of some of the business being done at the liquor store — check cash- ing — might have had something to do with it being targeted. “That store is no longer cashing checks,” Burris said during the commis- sioners meeting. “I think that’s why they were targeted.” The robbery took place Dec. 5 at Cen- tre Liquors.
