GOLD HILL ó The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who robbed a store then left in a car with a woman driving.
According to department reports, a man went into the Gold Hill Market at 14155 U.S. 52 shortly before 1 p.m. Monday, bought a cookie and left.
A few moments later, the same man returned to the store and acted as if he was going to buy a drink. Instead, he pulled out a small silver handgun, pointed it at the clerk, and demanded money.
When the man asked for all the money, the clerk told him to take it.
“He reached in, took the money and ran out,” Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford said.
The clerk was not harmed.
The man was described as a black male, about 6 feet 9 inches tall and 200 pounds.Witnesses at the Post Office next door recalled seeing the same man get into a waiting cream- or gray-colored Jeep Cherokee parked outside. It was a late 1990s model. Witnesses said a heavy-set black female was driving. She was described as 40 to 50 years old with short, curly hair.
The two headed toward Stanly County.
Authorities ask anyone with information to contact Investigator Jason Owens or Sgt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8700.
