Detectives Investigating Two Commercial Robberies in Spring Hill

On 02-19-19 just after 4 p.m., Hernando County deputies were dispatched to the Dollar General store, located at 331 Commercial Way in Spring Hill, regarding a Commercial Robbery.

Upon arrival, deputies met with the clerk who advised that a white male approached the register with some candy.  As the clerk was scanning the items, the male stated, in a deep voice, to "keep the register open."  The clerk believed the male needed change and was not initially alarmed.

Early Scouting for Spring Gobblers

It’s nearing the end of the month and the dogwoods are beginning to blossom, the hog plum trees are already in full bloom and an even better signal that Spring is on the way; the turkeys are gobbling!  It’s a grand time to be out of doors and listening to their lusty calling. The hens are flocking together in fairly predictable feeding patterns and the toms are following along behind, counting down the minutes until the girls decide it’s breeding time.
