The Big Spring Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that took place at a convenience store in the 800 block of East Interstate Highway 20 Thursday evening.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, officers were called to the Star Stop No. 8 at approximately 8:50 p.m. in response to an aggravated robbery.
There is no more room at the inn — the inn for animals, that is.
Howard County Humane Society is at a point where animals are having to be turned away. As of Thursday afternoon, the shelter was housing 159 dogs and 65 cats.
“If we can take an animal we will and the situation changes daily, but the normal flow is for every one animal we adopt out we have one or two to take its place,” Jo Stone, Humane Society coordinator, said.
