man is charged
A convenience store clerk was robbed Tuesday night of $241, and a man was arrested later by the Wayne County Sheriff's Office and charged with armed robbery.
Jimmy Arnold Crumpler, 42, of Old Grantham Road was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 secured bond.
Sheriff Carey Winders today attributed the arrest to the alertness of the woman clerk and an unidentified citizen who was pumping gas outside. They got the license plate number of the getaway car, an older Buick, and told deputies.
The clerk reported that a masked white man entered the Friendly Mart at 335 U.S. 13 South at about 8 p.m., pretended to have a handgun and demanded money. She surrendered the cash and he fled in a car.
Deputies obtained a search warrant for the registered owner's address. Winders said the Special Weapons and Tactics team, Maj. Ray Smith, Lt. Darryl Overton and deputies went to the home and found the man.
Winders said property stolen from the store was identified and the all of the cash was recovered. A ski mask also was found nearby. A surveillance videotape was seized from the store as evidence.
"Getting the license number was a definite help in the case," Winders said. "I want to thank the citizen and the clerk for having the initiative to get the number."
A 22-year-old man wanted on three felony warrants in Virginia was found Tuesday by the Wayne County Sheriff's Office during a vehicle stop in Goldsboro.
Christopher Raye Brown had been charged with two counts of malicious assault and one count of use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail without bond.
Brown had been living in an apartment in the 1400 block of South John Street with 23-year-old Belone Malana Moore. Ms. Moore was charged with feloniously harboring a fugitive from justice and two misdemeanors, providing false information to an officer and resisting arrest. She was jailed in lieu of a $10,000 secured bond.
The Sheriff's Warrant Squad had been notified that Brown was staying with Ms. Moore and she was driving him around the city. Deputies found her and advised her of the charges against Brown. Within a week, deputies said she had moved to an unknown address.
Deputies K.M. Cox and C.G. Talarico were told that Brown was staying with Ms. Moore at a new address. After following the couple, Brown and Ms. Moore were arrested in the woman's car during a traffic stop at Olivia Lane and Lincoln Drive.
