Detectives with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office are asking the public for help in identifying a man who tried to rob a convenience store in Spring Lake earlier this month.
The incident happened just after 12:20 a.m. on June 8 at the Circle K gas station at 2820 Lillington Highway. The Sheriff’s Office said a man entered the store, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from the safe and cash register.
“When the suspect discovered that the clerk could not open the safe or cash register, he fled on foot in the direction of McCormick Bridge Rd.,’’ the Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
The man was wearing a white hooded jacket, black jeans, black and white Van shoes and a black mask, the release said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Lt. J. Woods at 910-677-5511 or Fayetteville / Cumberland County CrimeStoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).
