An alert employee at the Boulevard Pawn Shop in Goldsboro recognized a man in the store Tuesday as a state-wanted fugitive and notified Wayne County emergency dispatchers.
Sheriff's Deputies C.G. Talarico and M.K. Cox and Goldsboro police Sgt. Mike West quickly arrived and arrested 45-year-old Carl Lionel Simmons of Second Street. Simmons was wanted on outstanding charges from Wayne and Greene counties.
Simmons had been charged with one felony count each of breaking and entering and larceny and two felony counts of possession of stolen goods. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $35,000 secured bond.
Two men entered a convenience store at 601 W. Ash St. before dawn today and fired a handgun at two employees, according to a Goldsboro police report.

One suspect was described as black, 5-feet-10, and he wore a black hat, black jacket and black pants. The other suspect was described as black, 5-feet-11, and he wore a camouflage jacket with a fur collar and jeans.
