    Conv. stores get robbed inside the Rocky Mt. city limits all the time. We never even get those in the local paper! Then one gets hit and the Nash Co. Sheriff's office investigates and it gets on the news. Could the Chief be covering up something here too?! It is time to clean house in Rocky Mount!
