Robberies were up last year in Montgomery County Police's second district, according to second district commander Capt. David Falcinelli.
“Robberies are a violent crime and they’re certainly a priority for us to do what we can to prevent them and to make arrests for those incidents that have already occurred,” Falcinelli told Patch last month.
