Belvin’s Variety in Flatts robbed

A lone man wielding a bladed article robbed cash from the Belvin’s Variety at Flatts on Saturday night, police reported.

A woman employee at the Hamilton Parish store was threatened, but not injured, in the 7.15pm attack.

After demanding money, the man escaped on foot.

Police asked for anyone in the area at the time to contact them at 295-0011.

Reported gunshots around midnight on Saturday saw a police search of the King Street, Pembroke area.

No signs of shots being fired were found, and no injuries were reported — but anyone with information is asked to contact police at 295-0011, or Crime Stoppers at the confidential 800-8477 hotline.

At 1.50am on Sunday, a 45-year-old Devonshire woman was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving after a police patrol found an “extensively damaged” overturned car on Middle Road, Devonshire, near the junction with Orange Valley Road.

The driver received minor injuries in the crash.
