Three charged in Jack's Grocery robbery

SALISBURY — Three men have been charged in the armed robbery of Jack’s Grocery on Bringle Ferry Road Thursday night.
Authorities said deputies arrived to Jack’s Grocery and found the clerk had been robbed by a man wearing a ski mask and holding a knife.
The suspect demanded money and left with more than $4,000 cash and five cartons of cigarettes. A red vehicle was seen leaving the scene and deputies began a search for the suspects.
The suspect’s vehicle was spotted beside a parking lot near M&L Mini Mart on the corner of North Main and 11th street.
When officers with the Spencer and Salisbury police departments arrived, they detained a male matching a description given by a witness to the robbery.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located another male suspect inside a nearby apartment.
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and during the course of the investigation identified three suspects: Kevin Price, Zachary Ragan and Hector Torres. Torres was listed as the suspect with the knife.
A search of the apartment revealed a ski mask, knife and cartons of cigarettes, authorities said.
All three suspects were arrested and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.
Ragan, 34, and Torres, 29, both of 115 W. 11th St., Salisbury, were given $100,000 bonds. Price, 24, of 1728 N. Lee St., was also given a $100,000 bond.
The three of them will make their first appearance in court Monday.
