WACO -- A recent spike in robberies have Central Texas police cautioning everyone to be on high alert.

There have been at least five robberies in a little over a week in Waco.

And all of them have occurred in parking lots near businesses, restaurants and clubs.

So far only one arrest has been made.

Police say when leaving a bar, restaurant or any establishment to travel in groups, be aware of your surroundings and be a good witness.

"Look a little bit beyond the clothing description to things that people can't change. Birthmarks, missing teeth, speech impediments, particular hair styles, tattoos, marks, scars. Things that somebody can't just immediately change," said Sgt. Patrick Swanton.

Waco police say many times robbery suspects will wear layers of clothing and shed one of those layers to avoid being spotted after fleeing the scene.

“There is nothing deluded about my argument. I’m just presenting holes that are in this argument, and none of you know how to deal with that in a rational way.”It’s been dealt with completely rationally. We are showing you statistics and you are knocking down straw men and quoting whatever you heard in sociology class. BTW, one is a real science, the other is not.FYI, its OK to speak to you anyway I want because there is still (for now) the freedom to do so. I’d tell it to you in person. If it were not illegal, I’d tell it to you while binding your hands and putting a bag on your head and then I’d tell you again as I drove you toward the nearest negro infested part of town to drop you off. I’ll tell someone like you the same thing, most likely, while I twist a knife in their gut during the war that will result from all this mummery.If karma ever catches you, while you’re being murdered for $20 by some feral ape you can take solace in knowing that nobody could ever prove to you that the correlation between skin color and crime does not show a causation and the correlation can be ignored because that’s what your community college hippie professor told you. As you lay there, just remember that taste in your mouth is bile or blood coming up from your stomach and NOT your precious liberal pride.

oh wow, the armed robbery on the unit block of P Street NW was in broad dygilaht. These criminals don't seem worried at all about being caught. Perhaps someone from MPD could be asked to come to the next BACA meeting to talk about this.
