WAKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE

— A man whom police wanted in connection with a hold-up at a sweepstakes shop in July has been returned to Wake County to face an armed robbery charge after waiving extradition in New York City.

Police brought Jabril Khwan Lee Walker, 24, who listed a Fayetteville address when he was checked into the Wake County Detention Center, back from the Bronx on Tuesday.

Walker had waived extradition proceedings, and a judge had signed an order Feb. 6 ordering him to North Carolina.

Walker is charged with using a black semiautomatic pistol to rob the Good Luck Sweepstakes Internet cafe at 3308 Capital Blvd. on July 6.

Police had distributed a security-camera photo of the robber and asked for the public’s help in finding him.

They later took out a warrant for Walker, but he had left the area.

Walker was being held on $200,000 bail.
