Man On Robbery Spree Has Lawmen On Alert

Lawmen in one county are trying to nab the same armed robber who held up three convenience stores Wednesday morning.

To view pictures of the robber, click on the SLIDESHOW link above.

The first two happened in Wayne County where the robber first walked to a drink display, went to pay for the drink and pulled a knife on the clerk. Deputies say the Pantry Convenience Store on Highway 117 South was robbed at 1:53 a.m. Then about two hours later the Pantry on Highway 70 West was held up.

Around 6:30 a.m. Goldsboro police say the Kangaroo on North William Street was also robbed by a man armed with a knife. Police say the robber was seen leaving in a burgundy passenger car.

The robber was wearing a baseball cap, white t-shirt and gray shorts. He's a black man, 40 to 50 years old, between 5'6" and 6' tall. No one was injured in the three hold-ups.

Police have released surveillance video of the robber and pictures in hopes that someone will identify him.

Anyone with information should contact Wayne County Crimestoppers at 919-735-2255, Goldsboro police at 919-735-2255 or Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 919-731-1480.

    Bob, if Sheriff Gibbs fired you, it was the best days work he ever did. If not, he missed a real opportunity to bump up the average IQ at the department. Well I guess somebody did at some point in the past so somebody did a good days work.

    Bob, it must take one to know one. Your previous posts do not read like a conservative republican but more like an apoligist and an excuse maker for people's bad behavior. Since I am not a complainer I will not ask the moderator to take down your personal attack, I will simply point out that the post that made you lose your head like offended schoolgirl only asked you for some of your stupid tolerance blather. Stupid tolerance blather is really in vogue at the present time and has become popular with both political parties. I could not care less whose school bandwagon you jump on. I called you out for being a silly, fact oblivious apologist to the people who are terrorizing our communities. Now, calm yourself down, have another smoke, drink, or whatever will mellow you and re-read my previous post. Now, hot head, did you see the word liberal, demo, idiot, moron or any other word associated with the left wing socialists? No wonder your an ex-employee of the county.

    Tad your are either an idiot or can't read. I am an ultra conservative republican with 30 years law enforcement experience and if you would read my previous post you would see that. My friends are going to love this one. Please site an incident where I have been a "progressive" as you called me, but I am not a sheeple,nor a racist so I will say what I think! or either someone else is using my name and location. Maybe you're just upset because I didn't jump on the Jamesville and Bear Grass school bandwagon. If so get over yourself. Next time you call me out get your facts straight. As for this thug I hope he gets what he deserves Prison. I have NEVER advocated anything but stiff penalties or self defense through firearm use. Now go ahead and laugh and go back and re-read my posts and then have someone explain them to you. Oh by the way, I have never advocated any excuse for not obeying the law!!! This is soooo funny to believe I am a lib, friends are going to have a laugh!!!

    Rob, 26/flunky, SBK, Rich, Tracie, Bob from Belhaven, could one of you lead us off with some of your ever so tolerant blather about crime and the injustices that lead these would be fine, upstanding citizens to become complete wastes of human flesh. Please, I need to laugh again.

    Another one of Wayne County's most valuable citizens.Goldsboro needs to form a stakeout team like the NYPD did back in the good old days when a criminal was a common criminal with very few rights.Back then there was no grinning at the camera on TV. A cop would either slap you up side the head with a slapjack,or lay a revolver barrel across the top of your head if you didn't know how to act.But now the criminals have more rights than the police do.

    It's just a matter of time before you are somewhere with your young chldren and a'thug' robs the place. The police cannot really do anything because the judges and BEV just want to put them right back out on the street.
