SALISBURY — Salisbury Police say the search for a local man continues after he allegedly stole items from the Old Navy store and maced an employee to “get away.”

Officials said Claymore Christopher Jones II, 26, took merchandise and, on his way out of the door, maced an employee. The latest incident comes four days after police said Jones was wanted in the robbery of the Pop Shoppe.

Police said Jones went into the store, located at 1831 W. Innes St., about 2 a.m. Monday and demanded money.

He was given cash, officials said.

Warrants have been issued for his arrest on a charge of common law robbery in the convenience store incident.

Jones has multiple previous convictions, including larceny, obtaining property by false pretenses, possession of drug paraphernalia, assault, breaking and entering, and aiding and abetting larceny of a motor vehicle.
