There’s been some commenting on a Lights & Sirens blog post Monday about lack of coverage of a robbery at an East Side liquor store.

I got the information about that yesterday but was a little tied up with other news. So here’s the information:

A man robbed the liquor store at 1415 E. 72nd St. on Friday night. He implied he had a weapon during the robbery, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

He was described as black, in his 30s and 5 feet 7 with a medium build. He wore a dark green jacket and a black beanie with yellow and orange on it during the robbery.

The robber was seen leaving the area is a black 1980s pickup truck with a loud muffler.
