A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
For the second time in a week, a convenience store was robbed by a man with an hammer.
Police say the man entered the Diamond Shamrock store at 5670 Palmer Park Boulevard shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday armed with a hammer. After demanding money, the robber got away with cash and cigarettes. Police set up a perimeter around the area and used K-9 officers to help track the man with no success.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, standing 6 feet tall and wearing dark clothing. The suspect wore a ski mask, black shoes and gloves.
It was almost identical to a robbery at that very same location exactly one week ago, when a similar looking man strolled into the store carrying a hammer and demanded money from the clerk.
If you know anything about either crime, call police at 719-444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP.
