Grocery Store Robbed

Lenoir County deputies are looking for a man who robbed the Crossroads Grocery Store on Hugo Rd. in Kinston.

Deputies say the armed robber entered the store about 8:00 p.m. Tuesday and demanded money.

A surveillance photo shows the man wearing a ski mask over his face and carrying a handgun.

Deputies say when the robber left the store, he traveled toward Hwy. 58. There's no word on how much money was stolen.

They say he is believed to be the same man who robbed the North Lenoir store about two weeks ago.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office.
