Two local food businesses were victims of robberies over the weekend in which the suspect used a 10-year-old boy as an accomplice: Both N. Mississippi specialty shop the Meadow and NE food cart Pepper Box reported robberies in which staff members were threatened and forcibly held by an adult male, while a child grabbed cash from the register. No one was seriously injured in either incident; anyone with information should contact Portland Police. [KGW]
