      Former Officer Suspected of Deadly Plot

      A former Roanoke police officer accused of robbing a Franklin County Bank may have been planning much deadlier crimes.

      Bruce Abramski, Jr. is suspected of plotting to kill a number of Roanoke City police officers, as well as half-a-dozen Franklin County deputies.

      The allegations surfaced in a federal search warrant.

      The 26-year-old has been in jail since July 1, when he turned himself in on robbery charges.

      The warrant says Abramski told a former partner of his plan, which he said he would execute by the end of this week.

      Officers took several weapons from Abramski's home last month.
