Armed Robbery Under Investigation

Lincolnton, NC – Lincoln County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating an armed robbery at a convenience store south of Lincolnton Monday night.

 Deputies were dispatched to Ricky’s Food Mart, 1899 Gastonia Highway, Lincolnton, NC at 10:33 p.m. after the Communications Center received a call from the clerk on duty reporting the armed robbery.

 The clerk told deputies a black male wearing all black clothing entered the store, pointed a handgun at her and demanded money.  The clerk removed the cash drawer and gave it to the man.  He removed the money and forced the clerk to get under the counter.  He fled from the business running south on Gastonia Highway. 

 Detectives and a K-9 unit were called to the scene and the K-9 tracked the man for a short distance before losing the scent.  Investigators believe the suspect got into a vehicle parked a short distance from the store.

 The suspect is described as a black male, 5 feet-8 inches tall, weighing around 150 pounds with a skinny build.  He was wearing a black hoodie, black pants and black shoes.

 Adam and Baker District deputies along with Detectives Robin Powell, Danny Renn and Mark Stamey responded to the robbery and are continuing the investigation.

 Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050 or Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909. You can remain anonymous and if your Crime Stoppers tip leads to an arrest you could receive a reward of up to $1,000.
