Police Release Smithfield's Robbery Video

Police in one Eastern Carolina town hope the public can help them solve an armed hold-up of a restaurant.

Warsaw police today released surveillance video from the February 17th armed robbery at the Smithfield's Chicken 'n Bar-B-Q.

The video shows the robber coming into a side door and locking it behind him. He then went to the back of the restaurant and held three employees at gun point, tying them up with plastic zip ties.

Police say the gunman is a black man, around 6' tall, weighs around 150 pounds. He was wearing a long sleeve uniform-type shirt with an American flag on the sleeve, gloves and a mask. Investigators believe a passing tractor trailer driver may have seen the robber before he came into the restaurant.

If you have any information on this robbery, please contact Warsaw police at 910-293-7816.
