Reservoir Ave. Shell Robbed

Reservoir Ave. Shell Robbed
Cranston Police are investigating an apparent robbery at the Shell gas station on Reservoir Avenue.

The robbery happened around 7:30 a.m. Thursday and police were at the scene collecting evidence and investigating through the morning.

It's the fourth robbery to hit Cranston in recent weeks. The Mobil on Elmwood Avenue  was robbed by a man and woman in late December, the Shell on Pontiac Avenue  was robbed by two men on Jan. 4 and the Taco Bell on Cranston Street was robbed by a man who brazenly went behind the counter and took a cash drawer on Jan. 6.

In the Pontiac Avenue Shell incident, police have arrested one man but another remains at large.

More details will be posted as they become available.
