Law enforcement dispatchers come to expect a busy night when the moon is full.

For what ever reason, that proved true overnight Monday with the moon approaching fullness at 7:32 a.m. Tuesday.

Macon police are investigating several incidents that began at 5:30 p.m. Monday with a robbery by force outside Mike Brooks flooring at 4340 Pio Nono Ave.

The victim was hurt in the incident.

Just before 7:15 p.m. Monday, officers arrested three people trying to pawn a stolen computer at Pawn Max at 2404 Pio Nono Avenue.

Shortly after midnight, a man claiming to be pistol whipped was found near the Taco Bell at 945 Gray Highway.

Then just before 1 a.m., someone smashed in the front window of the Old South Pawn shop in the 4000 block of Pio Nono Avenue.

Anyone with information in these incidents is urged to call Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 877-68CRIME.
