KANNAPOLIS ó An man with a gun robbed the BP gasoline station on Dale Earnhardt Boulevard Monday night.
Police Detective Sgt. Chris Nesbitt said no one had been arrested in the robbery as of Tuesday afternoon.
The clerk described the suspect as a black man, about 6 feet tall and 185 pounds, with a muscular build. The man might have had some facial hair and was wearing a black shirt and dark blue pants, possibly jeans, Nesbitt said.
