CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Convenience Store Robber Sought

Police in one Eastern Carolina city need your help in identifying an armed robber.

Early Thursday morning a gunman came into the Wilco Hess on Sunset Avenue in Rocky Mount. He demanded money and cigarettes from the clerk.

No one was injured in the hold-up and the robber got away on foot, headed in a northeast direction from the store. Police released several surveillance photos of the robber. In the pictures you can see the store clerk on the floor while the gunman helps himself to the cash register.

To view the surveillance photos, click on the PHOTOS tab at the top of the story.

He is described as a black man, thin build, approximately 6'2" and in his 20's. He was wearing all black with a black shirt around his head and possibly wearing white gloves.

Anyone with information on the robber should call Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.

    what good are those pics? you can't see a thing but black clothes and white gloves. that's going to be a big help, not! mind as well say he getting away with this one and god only knows what else unless he (maybe even a she cause you never know now a days) left their own evidences behind or someone else involved or told about this and they snitch. but yeah i work at a gas station and lucky i have not been robbed but i know some who have and yes places are strict on how much you keep in draw. i know one robber one time at another store go away with $23, like really was that even worth it or the time you get if caught? NO! But some people dont think before they act, some dont care, and others will never learn!

    So glad I do not work behind the counter of a store anymore. This was on of my greatest fears, some idiot robbing me at gun point for what less than a $150 dollars. Hess is very strick on the amount you keep in your drawer at all times.

    Replace these useless cameras with a sniper. These gyp-marts could afford it.
