On Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:12 p.m., a Dollar General was robbed at gunpoint. The suspect is believed to be a 5’4″ white person who held a firearm up while demanding for all of the money in the register. This Dollar General was located near Hillsdale Lake in Paola off of Old Kansas City Road. Similarly, there was a robbery at the Subway in town Friday, Jan. 26. A customer claimed they went to pick up their order, and when they got there, the worker said they were robbed and forced to walk to the Family Dollar near by to buy gift cards. The teenage worker also claimed to be working alone.

With both of these incidents happening within two days of each other, within the same county, and the same crime, it is important to be aware of your surroundings. Even though many might feel comfortable in their small town, these types of crimes can still happen and it is important to stay aware and always be prepared.

About the Contributor
Hannah Mueller, Copy Editor
Hi, my name is Hannah Mueller and this is my second year in SPUB and I am one of our copy editors this year. I am so excited to be more creative with my stories and designing this year, as well as be a voice for our student body. Journalism matters to me because everyone's voice needs a chance to be heard and many topics are important but aren't talked about. Other than journalism, I am involved with theater and volleyball. I also enjoy reading and hanging out with my friends. I am beyond excited to see what is to come for this year.
