Man Charged With Attempted Armed Robbery In Lenoir County

The man who lawmen say tried to rob a local high school student at gunpoint in Lenoir County is now in custody, according to the Kinston Free Press.

The paper says, 24-year-old Michael Hunt of Goldsboro is now locked up in the Lenoir County Jail and charged with attempted armed robbery after a North Lenoir High School student identified Hunt as the gunman who told him to empty his wallet Saturday afternoon at the Handy Mart on Highway 258.

He is being held under a $50,000 bond.

    A product of our society. Have babies, get money... after they are 18, money runs out... rob and get your own money! JOB??? What is that? We are intitled to what ever we want. Working is not an option. OUR SOCIETY PAYS IGNORANT AND USELESS TO MULTIPLY! We have to take drug test to work to supply money for THEM to live... but they do not have to take drug test to take the money? GO FIGURE! If they can live with themselves, then they have to give account on JUDGEMENT DAY. See if their eternity is as giving!

      believe me he has no intentions of ever getting a job. He knows the system will work just fine for him as it does for many others just like him.

    Another thug off the streets. He'll be back out, robbing in two shakes....I'm sure his mom is proud. Dad probably bought the bullets.
