For the second time in two weeks police cars were called to a Salvation Army thrift store, but this time no money was taken.
Kinston police say they were called just after 4:00 p.m. to a possible robbery at the Salvation Army on Boy Scout Boulevard.
Because of another robbery exactly two weeks ago, employees were on the lookout for anything suspicious. Police say a worker saw a man wearing a partial mask approach the store, so they went towards the rear of the building.
When the man armed with a handgun came in, no one was at the register. He stayed there for a few moments and then left with no money.
Police say they have some good leads in Friday's attempted armed robbery, but so far no arrests.
Kinston Police are looking for a suspect they say robbed the Salvation Army store.
Police say employees at the site on Boy Scout Boulevard report a man walked into the store and demanded money. They say he got money from a cash register located near the front of the store.
Witnesses describe the suspect as a tall, slender man wearing a blue hooding and red bandana over his face. Police say no one was injured in the robbery but the suspect did get away with an undetermined amount of cash.
Anyone with information on the robbery can call the Kinston Police Department.
