Police say Ronnie Samuel cook, 44, walked into the store on January 4, and asked to buy a lottery ticket. He then demanded the store clerk give him lottery tickets, the contents of the cash register and several packets of cigarettes. Afterwards he left the store and drove off in his car.
Cook is also suspected of robbing a Shell Station in Henrico County, but theft may be the least of his crimes. He is presently being held in the Richmond City Jail, accused with stabbing his 78-year-old mother to death earlier that same day.
