It did take long for cops to nab a suspect who they say held up a doughnut shop in Greenville.
It happened early Thursday morning at the Krispy Kreme on East 10th Street.
Responding officers stopped a person fitting the robber's description walking down 12th Street.
Police have charged Eddie McCracken, Jr. with armed robbery and possession of a crack pipe.
Authorities say McCracken came into the doughnut shop and placed an order. He then placed his hand under his shirt and pointed what employees believed was a gun and demanded money.
The 45-year-old McCracken is in the Pitt County jail on a $50,000 secured bond.
