Man charged in two Walgreens robberies

A Kannapolis man has been charged in two separate robberies at Walgreens at 1310 S. Cannon Blvd.
Kannapolis Police officers arrested Matthew Allen Charles of Kannapolis and charged him with two counts of armed robbery.
The first incident was on April 13 at approximately 12:30 a.m. Walgreens officials reported a white male wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, tan pants and white shoes entered the business, jumped over the pharmacy counter, displayed a knife and demanded a specific controlled drug. The employees gave him what he wanted and he ran out of the store on foot heading toward Eastwood Avenue.
The second incident was on April 24 at approximately 12:20 a.m.. Walgreens officials reported a white male wearing a red jacket and makeup jumped over the pharmacy counter with a knife in his hand. The suspect demanded a specific controlled drug before jumping back across the counter.
Once the suspect left the pharmacy, a customer grabbed him from behind after hearing someone yell “Stop him.” The suspect cut the customer’s hand with his knife and the customer let go. The suspect ran out of the store and across Dale Earnhardt Boulevard towards Eastwood Avenue.
After reviewing video surveillance footage and examining evidence left at the scene, Charles was arrested on April 24 and charged with two counts of armed robbery. He was put in the Cabarrus County Jail in lieu of a $50,000 secured bond.
