Police investigating robbery at Tobacco Hut in Arlandria

A robbery was reported at the Tobacco Hut (3500 Mount Vernon Avenue) in Arlandria.

Robbers in black puffy jackets and ski masks reportedly took around $400 from the store and implied that they had weapons, according to the police scanner.

Scanner traffic indicated the suspects left the scene in a car.

The 3500 block of Mount Vernon Avenue has seen multiple robberies in the last year, though those robberies generally favor the more lucrative Wells Fargo bank next door.
