make up the VIPER Task Force, targeting
violent crimes...And members spent the
afternoon visiting five high crime
areas in Roanoke...Their message is
clear...police can help and encourage
any reports of crime including gang
activity. An issue that has taken the
spotlight in the area after eight
people were shot in one of the task
force's targeted areas, the Melrose
Corridor.

BM --9:27:29-41 i've been in several
cities, gang issues you can't walk the
streets....it may come to that in
Roanoke, we're not there yet, Roanoke,

still a safe place but we don't want to
come there either

Afton Gardens, formerly part of Lincoln
Terrace, is also one of the targeted
areas..but a new management group has
joined the fight against crime....

DP --9:17:57 it was a big party here,
big block party, activity you could
stand here and watch it

But just three weeks after taking over
the property, residents have noticed a
calm come over the
neighborhood...mainly due to security
guards posted at the complex 24 hours a
day.

DP --9:18:14 two weeks ago, first time
residents were allowed to bring their
children out, certain members of the
community would scare them back in

Debbie admits while there are still
problems, including threats against her
and the company things are getting
better and there are great plans for
the neighborhood.>>

and didn't roll out for several hours.

Blacksburg already was in Bedford

at 1 apiece.

Both starting pitchers went the
distance and then some. The Green

to end a Glenvar threat in the 9th.

Brian Bowles was up to the task.
He works out of a jam in the 10th to
keep Glenvar alive.

It was still 1-1 in the bottom
of the 11th when Hunter DeHart got down
the bunt. *CG final Glenvar The throw to first got away allowing 2 Jimmy Gusler to slide in safely with Narrows the winning run for Glenvar. The 1 Highlanders survived 2-1 gaining a Final in 11 Innings berth in the state tourney.

Surveillance Video But it turned out to be a
really bad idea for a robber in Fort
Worth Texas.

Surveillance video shows him
falling 20 feet from the ceiling to the
floor.

After coming to his senses,
he took money out of the cash register,
then tried to smash his way out the

door.

When that didn't work, he
sat down, lit a cigarette and waited
for police.

They arrested him about an hour
later. (END VO) (END VO)
