Robbery suspect spotted on camera at Kwik Fill store on Fluvanna Ave. hours before CVS hold-up...

It appears one of the two men involved in the armed robbery at the CVS Store in Brooklyn Square was buying something to drink at a convenience store in another part of Jamestown a few hours before the hold-up.  Jamestown police are now circulating a picture of a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt about 10:45 Tuesday night at the Kwik Fill Station at the corner of Washington St. and Fluvanna Ave.  City Police Captain Bob Samuelson says the sweatshirt has the same lettering and design as one worn during the CVS hold-up.  Samuelson says the shirt, which has "Tail Gate Party" on it has a unique design.  Samuelson says the female clerk working that night saw the photos released by police yesterday... and, quickly noticed that one said "Tail Gate Party" on it.  He says the man was wearing a different mask than in the CVS robbery, and didn't act out of the ordinary.  In the CVS robbery... the man wearing the "Tail Gate Party" sweatshirt was wearing an orange bandana around his face.  This one was a dark blue.  The two men had the clothing on at CVS when one pulled a knife... and, the pair ran off with prescription drugs... cash and cigarettes.  Anyone with information is asked to call police at 483-7531... or the JPD Tip-line at 483-TIPS... that's 483-8477.


Seasonal home in Greenhurst gutted by fire...

Flames have gutted a two-story... seasonal home in the town of Ellery.  First Assistant Fluvanna Fire Chief Jerry Raab says crews were called to the scene at 3950 J T Avenue in Greenhurst shortly before 8 this morning.  Raab says no one was in the home at the time... and, crews found heavy fire coming from the first floor on arrival.  He says there was heavy fire on the first-floor, and the flames had just started spreading to the second-floor.  He says they pulled two hand-lines to begin attacking the fire."  Raab says the flames moved rapidly to the second-floor... and, it took a while to bring the blaze under control in about 45 minutes to an hour.  He says the problem was the home was with the older, "balloon-type" construction... it allowed the flames to travel through the walls.  Raab says crews had to do a lot of overhaul work on the structure.  He says no firefighters were hurt.  Mutual aid was provided by Bemus Point... Gerry... Ellery Center and Sinclairville Fire companies.  The county's Fire Investigation Team has determined an electrical problem in a kitchen cabinet apparently sparked the blaze.
