Search On For Most Wanted Suspect

Police say they need your help to find a suspect who is getting more violent in his crimes.

The police chief in Beulaville in Duplin County says he heard this man say as a teenager that he wanted to kill a cop-- and the chief takes him seriously.

Police say 25-year-old Brian Davis from the Beulaville area is wanted both in Duplin and Sampson counties.

In 2008 police say Davis shot at a Duplin County Deputy-- served less than 10 months in prison, and has been out since then-- working on smaller crimes including breaking and entering-- that is, until last week. Police say on September 4th Davis targeted the manager of the Family Dollar Store-- two blocks from the police station.

The plan was to kidnap the manager from his home- then get him to the store and get any cash in the safe. The plan didn't work out and the manager was unharmed. But the fact that Davis is becoming more bold- combined with his old rap sheet has the police chief chomping at the bit to arrest him.

Police say to consider Davis armed and dangerous- if you see him, call police-- do not attempt to approach him yourself.

    How smart do you have to be to catch a stupid criminal like this!! I just can't believe that he hasn't been caught yet. This is unreasonable for the people of the county. Speaks alot for our community!

    Why wasn't this manager carrying? If he is a manager, and has access to the company's safe and it's cash deposits, not being armed is just plain irresponsible--for himself, his family, and his employees. Hopefully this manager has learned his lesson... If he HAD been armed, this story would have a MUCH happier ending--"Career Criminal Shot Dead by Kidnapping Target who Refused to be a Victim"--THAT is the headline we REALLY should be reading...

    any person convicted of shooting on officer should serve a minimum of ten years.Build more prisons, put the criminals away. If there is only one law abiding citizen left, they sould not be bothered by convicted criminals.

    This guy seems to be getting his ideas from the movie "Bandits". Where Bruce Willis & Billy Bob Thornton, kidnapped people at their homes, and stayed overnight with them to take them to the safe the next day. Except Bruce & Billy kidnapped bankers and not Family Dollar managers.
