Last Night Police say 45-year-old Bernard
Taylor stole a ring from the JC-Penney
store at Tanglewood Mall.

Police and an ambulance were
called to the parking lot after a store

employee chased the suspect to his car.

The employee was dragged a short
distance by a light colored Lexus and
was taken to the hospital with non-life
threatening injuries.

But Police say Taylor's crime
spree began actually yesterday
afternoon with a stolen credit card.

Later that night, he was chased
from Penney's.

Police say the spree continued
about an hour later with an attempted
hold-up at Diva's House of Hair at
Lamplighter Mall in Roanoke.

Taylor then allegedly robbed the
residents of a home on Raymond Avenue.

Taylor was caught when his Lexus
crashed on Lewiston Road while being
chased by Roanoke police.

suit up in their bowl games, there is
still the N-F-L playoff picture to sort
out, and this weekend On Christmas Eve

here to your hometown station for a
double-header.
TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX

The first game is the Cleveland
Browns taking on the Pittsburgh
Steelers and Bill Cowher's club needs
to win to keep them in the lead for a
Wild-card berth and these 2 teams are
seperated by just 2-hours and they flat
out really don't like each other.


The second game will not doubt be
an emotional one as the Indianapolis
Colts will play their first game since
the death of their Head coach Tony
Dungy's son. They will take on the
Seattle Seahawks in what could be a
possible Super Bowl preview. Jim
Caldwell will coach the Colts as they
will no doubt be playing with heavy
hearts.
