Philadelphia Police are now searching for an armed robber who has been targeting businesses in Chestnut Hill and West Oak Lane. Police have stated that the robber pulled out a knife on an employee at a Metro PCS store on Stenton Avenue this past Tuesday, he was unsuccessful in his robbery and did not get away with any money. The robber then robbed a different Metro PCS the next day on Ogontz Avenue, and was able to get away with $120 cash. The suspect is also accused of attempting to rob a Gateway Cleaners on Germantown Avenue last Saturday.

New Jersey Police are now investigating two deaths in Maple Shade. Police were called to Fox Meadow Apartments just after 9 pm on Thursday in response to two dead bodies found inside one of the apartments. Police remained on the scene Thursday night to continue their investigation into the bodies found. It is said that police and officials on the scene are being very close-knit about the investigation.

City Officials have now released the total revenue brought in by the City's Sweetened Beverage Tax in February. The city collected $6.4 million, which exceeds the city's projected proposal of $6.3 million. The tax generated $5.9 million in the month of January, which more than doubled the city's prediction of $2.3 million. The tax on sweetened beverages hikes the tax price up to $1.44 on a six pack of soda. Pepsi has announced that they are pulling their six packs and 2-liter bottles off of shelves in Philly to offer products that families can easily afford.
