Morehead City Convenience Store Robbery Arrest

The suspect allegedly involved in a convenience store robbery over the weekend has been arrested by Morehead City Police.

Authorities say they took 23 year old James Jenkins into custody on Saturday, that's after they were dispatched to a fight at Willis Mobile Home Park. When officers showed up they noticed Jenkins was wearing the same clothing as the suspect involved in the robbery. That robbery happened Friday night at the Handy House Convenience Store on Arendell Street. Officials say Jenkins barged in, jumped over the counter, beat up the female store clerk and took off with one of the cash registers.

He's charged with:
Engaging in Affray - Misdemeanor
Robbery with a dangerous weapon - Felony
Assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury - Felony
Injury to personal property - Misdemeanor
