Theft becomes robbery with threats


College Station police say what would have been a theft was bumped up to being handled as a robbery after threats allegedly were made at a College Station grocery store.

It happened just before 10:30 p.m. Sunday at the HEB at 1900 Texas Avenue in College.

During their investigation police learned that several items of merchandise totaling over $175 had been gathered in a large bag with two women then trying to leave the store without paying.
