Two adult men and one juvenile have been arrested after the Tobacco Zone store in Colonial Heights was robbed in an early morning burglary.
Colonial Heights Police responded to 127 Pickwick Avenue Sept. 7, slightly before 7 a.m. The glass front door to the business had been shattered and a witness officers interviewed observed a subject exiting the business carrying merchandise.
