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.
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.
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.
