Police made an arrest in a robbery, just minutes after cash from the register was taken last night.
Kinston police have charged Jessie Courtney, Jr. with common law robbery after the C-Mart on Greenbriar Road was robbed.

Courtney was jailed on $75,000 bond while Leslie Bryant was charged with accessory after the fact and given a $2,500 bond.
