Arrest Made In Kinston Store Robbery

Police made an arrest in a robbery, just minutes after cash from the register was taken last night.

Kinston police have charged Jessie Courtney, Jr. with common law robbery after the C-Mart on Greenbriar Road was robbed.

Police say around 8:20 p.m. Tuesday a customer tried to purchase an item and jumped over the counter when the cash register was opened. The man then grabbed an undisclosed amount of money.

A witness saw the robber get into a brown Chevy Tahoe, driven by a woman. A partial license tag was given police and a short time later officers detained two people on Rhodes Avenue.

Courtney was jailed on $75,000 bond while Leslie Bryant was charged with accessory after the fact and given a $2,500 bond.
