The Roanoke Rapids Police Department reported the following:


Captain Bobby Martin said officers responded to the RR Business Center at Oakland Shopping Center near Big Lots Sunday around 5:30 a.m. on an armed robbery call.

A person described as a black male standing 5-feet, 8-inches with a medium build pointed a handgun at an employee and demanded money. Martin declined to say whether the man wore a mask.

The employee complied and left the establishment with an undisclosed amount of money.

Credit card


Investigator Obert Wiltsie reports a woman using a stolen credit card bought $1,600 worth of money orders and MoneyGram orders at Food Lion on August 25.

The card was stolen from Rocky Mount.


Stolen check


Wiltsie also reported the police department is seeking a woman who bought a small amount of items and received change after presenting a stolen check at a local business on October 23.

Anyone with information on any of these cases is encouraged to call the police department at 252-533-2810, Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444 or for Wiltsie’s two cases 252-533-2823.
