From RTD we get the news of 3 armed men robbing Movieland

Ladin said the three suspects, all brandishing handguns, went into the business as employees were preparing for closing about 2:35 a.m., took undisclosed items from two employees and fled on foot.

An officer who was on patrol in the area at the time was flagged down, and police quickly took into custody one person. Ladin said detectives were trying to determine that person’s level of involvement.

Officers and detectives were scouring the area around Movieland, a former steel-assembly building at North Boulevard and Leigh Street, in an effort to find other suspects.

The theater has become a major building block in efforts to redevelop the area along North Boulevard.
