Owner: Sweepstakes Robbed Saturday Night

The owner of a sweepstakes operation in the East says that his business was robbed Saturday night.

James Mooring tells WITN that a man in a mask and hoodie entered the Jackson Heights Sweepstakes on 2626 Highway 11 in Lenoir County, and demanded money with a hand gun.

Mooring says the suspect got away with a minimal amount of cash, and that no one was injured in the hold up.

Mooring says that the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
