* First it was PetSmart in broad daylight…
Two men accused of an armed robbery in the Springfield PetSmart parking lot have been arrested.
Police say Tyler Sigretto, 21, and Dakota Davis, 20, both of Springfield, were arrested over the weekend following the Friday morning incident. Sigretto and Davis allegedly approached two people in the parking lot with guns and demanded personal belongings.
* And then Nature’s Select, also in broad daylight…
Springfield police are looking for a man who robbed the Nature’s Select Pet Store Wednesday afternoon.
Police described the robber as a dark-skinned black man with a thin build who is 20 to 30 years old and between 6 feet and 6-foot-2. He was wearing a light gray sweatshirt and sweat pants.
The man entered the store at 540 W. Monroe St. around 3:35 p.m. armed with a box cutter. He demanded money from an employee but fled on foot when a customer entered the business.
I regularly bring Oscar to both of those stores.
I know I shouldn’t be, but this has me a bit rattled.
