Is this a future robbery? March 25th and 26th has yet to occur or was this a report from last year?

Thanks for reporting this incident. I check the Police Blotter regularly, but it seems like most of the reporting is for DUI's or speeding. I'm more interested in police activity going on in the neighborhood. I walk quite a bit and am surprised at how many vans and trucks I see cruising up and down the streets. I may see the same vehicle 2 or 3 times during the course of a long walk. It makes me wonder what they are up to, especially when the driver is wearing a hoodie or ski cap.
