Email News Alerts

Despite a string of robbery reports over the past few months, local authorities say the crime isn't on the rise in the community.

In the two most recent cases - a credit union heist on Dec. 18 and a robbery at a Taco Bell on Jan. 13 - police made arrests and charges have been filed.


Fargo police Sgt. Ross Renner said he hasn't seen a drastic increase, although the numbers did go up from 2007 to 2008.
