WHO AM I? Police want to ID sweepstakes robber

ROANOKE RAPIDS, NC (WITN) - Police in one Eastern Carolina town are hoping you can help them solve a sweepstakes robbery.

Roanoke Rapids police today released surveillance photos of a man who robbed the Goldmine Sweepstakes Cafe two months ago.

Back on January 16th around 1:00 a.m., police say a man wearing a fluorescent yellow rain jacket came into the business and demanded that a clerk put money in a black bag.

After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, the man left the business, heading out of the mall through the Becker Drive side.

Anyone who knows the name of the robber should call the Roanoke Rapids Police Department (252)533-2810 or Crime stoppers (252)583-4444.

Police say a reward by the business owner is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
