A 15-year-old boy has been charged in the Sunday armed robbery of the Enfield Subway, the town’s police department said in a statement today.
Asked this morning whether the boy might have been coerced into allegedly robbing the store, Captain Chuck Hasty said the department is following up on all leads in the case.
Asked whether another juvenile participated in the robbery Hasty again replied that all leads are being followed.
In the statement Hasty said on Thursday around 11:30 a.m. he encountered the juvenile in the 100 block of West Bryant Street.
The juvenile was found in possession of a concealed firearm and was detained. He was taken to Juvenile Services for processing for possession of a weapon of mass destruction and carrying a concealed weapon.
He was also processed for three counts of armed robbery for the Subway heist and two employees.
The investigation continues and more charges are expected.
The police department said earlier this week on Sunday at approximately 7 p.m. officers were called to Subway on South McDaniel Street about an armed robbery.
Two people entered the business armed and demanded money from the employees.
The people left through the backdoor with an undisclosed amount of money.
One person was wearing a white hood and dressed in dark colored clothing.
The other person was wearing a red hood and dressed in dark colored clothing and is taller than the other.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Hasty at 252-445-5122; Halifax County Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444 or through the P3 Tips mobile app.
