Late Afternoon Armed Robbery in Branson

A man armed with a knife robbed the Conoco convenience store on West Main in Branson, across from Backyard Burgers. This happened at about 4:30 this afternoon. The suspect is described at as white man, 5-feet 8-inches tall... and 190 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket and black wool cap. The bandit had the cap pulled partially down over his face, but witnesses said they could see blonde stubble on the lower part of the man's face. He's also described as being in his 20s or 30s and was very wet from obviously being out in the rain. This is Branson Police Sergeant Ron Gann less than a half-hour after the robbery...

Police are checking motels to see if perhaps this suspect tries to check in to dry off. No injuries were reported in the robbery. The clerk is also telling police he thinks he saw the suspect in the store earlier, perhaps casing it.

Thats right across the street from where my friend Silva use to live before she passed away last summer.I wonder if anyone bought her property yet? I seen it was for sale.The land there was not worth as much as she thought.Maybe at one time it was worth alot,but not anymore.That part of town has seen better days.

Well, Joy, sometimes life's a beach...when it is, you've just got to be a beachcomber.

Beachcomber lol ,How long have you lived in Branson? If it has been a long time,you know things are getting out of hand lately.I hope they hire more police soon,to handle the increasing wave of crime that has been tearing across Branson.

I just heard on the radio, that they caught the guy. He was 25 years old, and it said they caught him at a local motel, so I guess their theory about him going to a motel, was correct.

As long as the judges keep slapping their wrists and putting them back on the streets, more police will not help. What they need is a strong judge & prosecutor who will impose very deterent penalties to all! Locals, Tourist, Vagrants & Illegals. Make them afraid to do the crime because it's HARD-TIME! These types do not put profit in Branson anyway. They take up space and scare away more tourist trade than stiff penalties ever could.

Did you know Silva well?She would have been shook up that this happened right across the street from her and she would be glad they caught him.I heard on another site they caught him.I really miss Silva, she was a good friend.

Maybe they should get a webcam like the Titanic uses? U can see inside the gas station, and the drug store, and you can see who takes who at lunchtime to the motel.

Hell Comic, they can do that now from outer space. You can almost do that with "google earth"

Haha-Carp. You are right.
But, have you tried that webcam at the Titanic?
I was reading about it on another ''site'', and went to look.

Hey-how often do they take those pictures from space. I went to check St. Louis weather on the Weather Channel Website, and found the link to the SpaceCam <wink>.

I found my neighborhood, and saw that my old pickup was still on the driveway. My new truck is 5 weeks old. I thought that view from the big eye in the sky, was immediate.

Anyway, if you want to find out who is sitting in the cars at the intersection at the Titanic, try their webcam. It's indecent. ROFLOL

I use that webcam btw to check on Branson weather.

Ya, it's pretty neat. You can check traffic and weather. Don't worry, the Gov.(big bro.) can see you & your lic. plate in real time and probably read it faster than you can 3' behind your truck!....LOL Damn, that's scary! The only thing that is invisable on the satalite cams is illegal aliens. 13 million of them here and they can't seem to find a damn one.....LMAO big time!!

Maybe the robber was homeless and hungry and cold and just desperate because he got dumped in Branson where his dreams of stardom turned to crap. Maybe he went begging at one of those big churches that take but do not give. Maybe he needs help more than jail.

This is possible.
However the 8th Commandment is: Exodus 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.

So, I presume you feel, that we should all turn the other cheek, and feed the thieves?

Jesus would have, but as imperfect as we all are, we are judging the crook. And, that is a human trait.

A thief needs to be shamed, so he has the opportunity to atone for his mistakes,...

Aha...that is why the Churches are full of thieves?

j/k folks....
Don't get your undies in a wad.

Maybe he's just a low-life SOB who thinks he has a right to take what he wants, when he wants it. Maybe he's supporting a drug or booze habbit instead of shelter. Maybe he's just lazy and don't want to work, especially if he can take yours. Maybe he's not like you and me and the rest of society, with 2 lakes and many ponds and a forest full of food, he's too dumb not to starve. Maybe he's been in the clink before and with winter here, he just wants 3-hots and a cot!
get your head out of your butt and smell the coffee. Your not "Alice" and this aint "Wonderland"!! If he knocked on doors to ask for help, he would find it. If nothing else, the sheriff would direct him to a shelter. WAKE UP! WHEN YOU RUN DOWN TO VOTE FOR OSAMA-OBAMA, BECAUSE OPRAH TOLD YOU TO, ASK YOURSELF THEN "AM I STILL BEING STUPID?". DAMN "TOUCHY-FEEL-GOOD" LIBERALS!8727

YOU ARE WRONG ABOUT "JUSUS WOULD HAVE". IF YOU READ THE BIBLE, YOU FIND THAT JUSUS DROVE THE MONEY LENDERS (THIEVES AND CROOKS) FROM THE TEMPLE. HE DID NOT CALL THEM INTO THE TEMPLE TO FEED THEM DINNER!! REMEMBER ALSO THAT THE LORD HELPS THOSE THAT TRY TO HELP THEM SELVES. YOU DO NOT "DEMAND" OF GOD OR HIS REPRESENTITIVES! THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE IT STATES "ASK" LIKE ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE! NO WHERE HAVE I READ "DEMAND AND YOU'LL GET IT! LMAO & ROLLIN ON THE FLOOR
