Vehicle used in home invasion here also used in Albemarle robbery

Albemarle police say a vehicle used in a home invasion in Salisbury on Tuesday was also used in a robbery Tuesday night and later abandoned in Albemarle.

At 11:53 p.m. Tuesday, Albemarle police officers received a report that someone had a gun at 220 N. Seventh St. Witnesses told the officers that some people robbed them and shot a man.

The gunshot victim, Alvin Currie Sr., was taken to a hospital by friends while officers continued to interview possible witnesses.

Officers were told that multiple vehicles pulled up in front of the home and five people armed with guns ordered people to get on the ground. The gunmen entered the home and fired a shot inside, striking Currie in the arm. Cellphones, purses, car keys and clothing were taken by the gunmen, who fled in an unknown direction.

One of the vehicles used in the robbery was later found abandoned in Albemarle. The vehicle had been stolen in Salisbury and used in the home invasion earlier Tuesday night.

The Albemarle Police Department is working with the Salisbury Police Department to find the suspects.

Anyone with information about either crime is asked to call the Albemarle Police Department at 704-984-9500. Anonymous tips can be left at 704-984-9511.
