Here are some additional items I came across in the media this week that may be of interest.
Hallenbeck Coin Gallery Robbed
I'm very glad to hear no one was hurt in an armed robbery this week at the coin store of Ken and Tom Hallenbeck in Colorado Springs, CO. Thanks to Lee and Dave Bowers for passing this along.
A person armed with a pistol robbed a Colorado Springs coin store.
The robbery happened just before 3 p.m. on Friday at Hallenbeck Coin Gallery downtown. The store is off North Nevada Avenue just north of Willamette.
Police say officers flooded the area in an attempt to locate the male robber who fled on foot. Officers add the robbery was quick and no one was hurt. A K-9 unit was brought to the scene but the criminal remains at large.
