A Roanoke Rapids man is wanted in an armed robbery which occurred around 1:30 this afternoon at the Green Store off Highway 48.
Chief Deputy Scott Hall of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said this evening it is unclear what areas beyond Roanoke Rapids 23-year-old Michael Jermaine Garrett Jr. might frequent.
He was last seen getting into a white 1998 Chevrolet Suburban with chrome rims. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt or jacket and blue jeans.
Deputies learned someone entered the store brandishing a silver handgun and demanded money. The suspect fled the store with an undisclosed sum of money.
Investigation by Lieutenant Josh Langley and Sergeant Andy Cash led to the identification of Garrett.
