Richmond Police are increasing patrols on the city's south side after four robberies and one attempted robbery in about twelve hours.
The incidents happened over the weekend. Now, you'll see more officers in the Bellemeade area and along the Jeff Davis Highway corridor.
Right now, detectives only believe two of the incidents are connected. In each of the four robberies, the suspects were armed with guns. So far, police have made an arrest in only one of the crimes.
Guy Venable Jr., 23, is charged with attempted robbery and aggravated assault.
