Another Armed Robbery Probed

Two men robbed a Halifax business Saturday night at gunpoint, according to Sheriff Stanley Noblin.

Sometime before 8 p.m. Saturday, clerks at the Friendly Corner Store on Mountain Road in Halifax reported two men rushed into the store brandishing a handgun and demanded all the money from the cash register, Noblin said.
