Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested In Pamlico County

Authorities say they arrested an armed robber Saturday evening within 30 minutes of the crime.

The Pamlico County Sheriffs Department arrested Isaiah Wiggins just before 8 pm Saturday for an armed robbery at the CVS in Grantsboro.

Officials say Wiggins entered the store wearing dark sunglasses and a hat.

Authorities say he showed the cashier a knife and demanded money.

They say Wiggins got away with 160 dollars, but it was only 30 minutes later that he was apprehended by authorities.

No one was injured in the robbery.

      I'll tell you what wasn't going through his mind. It wasn't the terrified cashier. It wasn't his parents who have to think that they failed as parents and now have to see their little boy through ballistic glass. It wasn't the other customers that have to pay extra to meet the cost of the stolen money. Last but least, he didn't think nothing of you and I , the taxpayers that are gonna feed and clothe his sorry behind for x amount of years.

    I was one of the clerks that was robbed from CVS, and I just got to say thank you to all the police officers involved. Talk all you want about Pamlico Sheriff's Dept. they responded within five minutes and had the guy caught within the half hour. Things could have been so much worse, lots to be thankful for. It just goes to say that you never know why people do what they do, and if you think that it will never happen in Pamlico you are wrong. Think back over the year: Burger King, HandyMart, Ahmeds in Vandamere this is just the beginning of crime seeping into all little counties throughout North Carolina.

      Try thanking the lord things didn't get worse. Unless you don't believe he exist and think the cops are our almighty savior.

    It so easy to place blame.This guy could have very good parents yet made this decision on his own!We can not decide later in life what our kids decide to do.Some parents get lucky and some don't.Raising kids is like rolling dice,and you never get a written guarantee as a parent!!!!

    I would bet this was not the first time he stole or robbed someone. This was the time he got CAUGHT. I hope they throw the book at him this time.

    Principal, it is not the schools' job to raise children. Yes, the schools are to educate. It is the parents and families' responsibility to teach children right from wrong from a young age, before the school education. The problem with society is that there is not much family stimulation of these kids. The parents just do their thing and the kids just get along and learn values and morals as they grow. Let's put the blame where it really goes. Parents and those who raise these kids are NOT doing their jobs.

    Can't stand the fact that in our small town of Grantsboro we get armed robbery. We only have about 5 stores, this is crazy. What are people thinking today?

    WOW- to be a Hundredaire for half an hour is worth the next ten years in prison, right? {sarcasm off}
