Dwight Vontre Harris


— A 17-year-old helped rob a Harris Teeter store on Jan. 7, robbed a man the day before and held up a Handee Hugo's station last month, Raleigh police charged in arrest warrants.

Police arrested Dwight Vontre Harris, for whom they listed no permanent address, at the Super 8 motel at 3804 New Berne Ave. on Friday.

They charged him with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, including the stickup at the Harris Teeter on St. Alban’s Drive, in which they had charged 21-year-old Patrick D’Aaron Guerra last week.

The day before that, the warrants allege, Harris held up a man and on Dec. 18 robbed the Handee Hugo’s at 4101 Wake Forest Road.

A black handgun was used in all three holdups, police said.

Harris was being held in the Wake County Detention Center on $10,000 bail for a court appearance Monday.
