    Insidenova.com: " Police say a gas station clerk pulled out a handgun and fired at two men who tried to rob him in Woodbridge late Saturday. The 29-year-old victim told police he had just locked up the Shell gas station at 12522 Gordon Blvd. near Occoquan and gotten into his car when two men approached. One opened the driver's side door and zapped the victim in the arm several times with a stun gun while demanding money, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok."

    Loudoun Times: "A 32-year-old Inwood, W.Va., man has been arrested in connection with a Nov. 29 bank robbery in Winchester, and he is a suspect in several more bank robberies across the region, including two in Loudoun. According to police in Winchester, FBI agents and authorities in West Virginia on Dec. 11 arrested Benjamin L. Sebastian and charged him with being a fugitive from justice from Virginia."

    Baltimore Sun: " Developer David Cordish plans to install 2,000 slot machines on the ground floor of a proposed parking garage while the adjacent Arundel Mills mall casino that would be Maryland's largest is under construction next year. A Cordish representative unveiled the idea Monday, with the garage-based parlor replacing a previous idea to house the first batch of machines in a fabric-sided temporary building. Cordish and state officials want a short-term home for mall slots to prime the flow of tax revenue as the $1 billion casino project — approved by county voters through a referendum last month — gets under way."
