Madison gas station targeted by armed robber

Good Wednesday evening, everybody. Here's what's ahead in our newscast tonight.

Madison Police are investigating the second business robbery in the city in less than a week. Police say an armed robber held up the Phillips 66 gas station on Hughes Road. The robbery happened shortly after 7pm tonight. Sunday, police say an armed robber also held up the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Highway 72. Could these cases be connected? We'll have details on tonight's holdup tonight at 10.

The holidays are all about giving, but some thieves are all about taking… and if you are not careful, you could be their next victim. Coming up tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10, we offer some tips on how to avoid being taken during the holidays.

And in tonight's Crime Stoppers, a crafty crook played a card trick that was neither fun or entertaining. How the thief used the victim's debit card and wiped out their account. We've got some pretty good surveillance pictures of him. If you can help identify the thief, you could put some money in your pocket this holiday season.

Join us for these stories and more tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10.

I'll see you then!
