Local News Headlines–7/10/2013

There was an armed robbery at a convenience store in College Station. Police responded Monday night around 8:00 p-m to the Checkers store at Holleman and Welsh.  An employee and a customer say they were held up by two black men, one displaying a weapon.  No one was hurt and an undisclosed amount of property was taken before the men ran away.

The Bryan City Council gave first round approval last night to proposed changes in regulating tattoo businesses.  Final action will take place in two weeks following the six to one vote.  Art Hughes voted against allowing tattoo shops in the downtown area.  Because the proposed regulations call for spacing tattoo businesses a minimum one mile, there will only be one in the downtown area. City changes would require applicants of any new tattoo shops to get a conditional use permit.

And, a Bryan man remains in jail following his arrest last weekend for disorderly conduct at the Premiere movie theaters.  Officer Kelley McKethan says 54-year-old Darrell Reynolds was waving his hand as if he was shooting a gun. According to jail records, it’s the third time Reynolds has been arrested in three months following arrests for public intoxication two weeks ago and in late April.
