Suspect accused of robbing same Kangaroo Express twice

Posted: Updated:

The Spring Lake Police Department is looking for an armed and dangerous suspect wanted in connection with two robberies at the same Kangaroo Express on South Bragg Boulevard.

One of the armed robberies took place July 8 around 2:52 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said the suspect entered the convenience store wearing a black cloth over face. He brandished a handgun and demanded money from an employee.

The employee gave the robber an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect was last seen running toward Wilson Avenue and Monroe Avenue.

A similar robbery was also committed at the same location on June 12. In that incident, a handgun was threatened but never displayed.

Detectives believe the same suspect is responsible for both robberies.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Spring Lake Police Department at 910-436-0350 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS.
