— Police arrested Donald Donnell Morris on Monday on a robbery charge that Wake Forest police had filed in connection with a July 7 holdup at a McDonald's restaurant.

Raleigh officers found Morris, 28, of 613 Hilltop Drive, Raleigh in the 3000 block of New Bern Avenue on Monday afternoon, an arrest report shows.

Wake Forest police charged Morris with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and attempted possession of a firearm by a felon, though an arrest warrant says that he “did possess a weapon, to wit a handgun....”

The robbery count is based on the theft of $7,180.31 in cash from a Forestville Road McDonald’s, police said.

Morris has several felony convictions, leading to the gun-possession charge.

He was most recently convicted in 2009 of two felony drug charges and in 2008 of robbery, state prison records show.

Morris was being held in lieu of $250,000 bail for a court appearance Tuesday.
