Sheriff’s investigators are still searching for the two suspects involved in a Thursday night armed robbery, and they are hoping the public can help them in their quest to see the pair captured.
“We are still looking for information and clues to find out who and where they are,” said Cpl. Marcus Smith Monday. “They are armed and dangerous and we want to get them off the street.”
The two suspects burst into the Dollar General Store, located at 608 N.C. Hwy. 24, June 21, around 8:45 p.m., brandishing weapons and demanding cash from the store clerk.
Smith said as the clerk attempted to open the drawer to the register, one of the men pushed the clerk down and took off with the register.
The entire incident was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras.
“We are hoping that someone may know something or recognize the two suspects and come forward,” Smith asserted. “Hopefully, with the pictures out there, someone will recognize them.”
The descriptions of the suspects, both identified as young African-Americans, are limited. One was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a red, white and blue ball cap. The other suspect was wearing black shorts, a black, long-sleeved shirt, tan boots and a camouflage cap.
If you have any information or may have been in the area at the time of the robbery, you are asked to call the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office at 910-592-4141. All tips will remain anonymous.
