Homeless man charged with robbery

SALISBURY — Police say a man threatened employees of a Salisbury store with a razor knife Saturday evening as he left wearing stolen clothes.
Terry Ray Jeffery, 52, of the streets of Salisbury, was arrested and charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon.
According to a report from the Salisbury Police Department, employees of Kmart at 815 E. Innes St. saw Jeffery enter the men’s restroom with a cart containing clothing, sunglasses and toiletry items worth $81.
The employees said he was wearing the new clothes when he came out of the restroom.
They called a loss prevention officer and tried to stop Jeffery as he was leaving the store. Police say Jeffery took out a razor knife, which is similar to a box cutter, and threatened to cut the employees.
He then ran away, the report said, heading along Arlington Street toward Old Concord Road. An officer found him hiding in tall grass beside Freeland Drive.
The officer found the stolen items, worth a total of $81, but the clothes couldn’t be returned to Kmart because they were soiled.
As of Monday, Jeffery remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
