There was bad luck for an armed robber in Danville early this morning. At about 20 till two, officer George Stevenson the Second was on duty at Sheetz on Riverside Drive, when a customer told him the place was being robbed. Stevenson went to the front and confronted the robber with his gun drawn.
The robber fled on foot, and the officer gave chase.

[TAKe LONDON FS] 33 year old Gary Dale London of Danville was caught by Stevenson -- and was taken into custody after a scuffle. He faces multiple charges-- including armed robbery, assault on a police officer, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

City council yesterday voted to spend close to half a million dollars to bring the fire department's salaries closer to the market average.

Nearly three weeks ago, several people were slightly injured after some concrete steps gave way at Victory Stadium.


And it looks like the problem will not be fixed anytime soon.

Shortly after the incident, the city found more crumbling steps and as a result blocked off four areas of the stadium.
The Civic Center which runs Victory Stadium has decided no repairs will be made until the citizen's committee makes a recommendation about the future of the facility.
City officials say it makes sense to hold off since the work will come with a hefty price tag.
