Police have arrested one man and shut down three convenience stores after investigators connected the businesses to fenced stolen goods and illegal gambling practices, officials say. Detectives padlocked the doors at Floyd Road's Lucky Food Mart, Floyd Road's Food Mart and Buena Vista Road's Pyramid Food Mart after executing simultaneous search warrants Wednesday. The raids were part of a Burglary and Theft Unit initiative to take down business managers profiting from area burglaries, Sgt. Joe Weatherford said
