RALEIGH — Knightdale and Holly Springs police each arrested a man Tuesday night charged with armed robbery, one involving an Arby's restaurant last August and one involving a bank last month.
Knightdale officers went to the 5812 Neuse St. home of William Clinard Shore, 31, and arrested him on a charge of robbery with a dangerous weapon in a Jan. 10 robbery at a Vantage South Bank branch.
The robber that day made off with $7,900, an arrest warrant said.
Holly Springs police arrested Derek Allan Carey, 25, at his home at 104 Timber Springs on a warrant in which Cary police charged him with an Aug. 12 stickup at an Arbys restaurant that netted a gunman $1,379.
In addition to robbery with a dangerous weapon, Cary police charged Carey with financial card fraud and forgery and identity theft, saying he used a womans cloned American Express credit card to buy $763 worth of merchandise a week before the Arbys holdup.
A magistrate set Shores bail at $150,000, noting he was put on three years probation in September 2012 for a common law robbery conviction in Wake County.
Carey was being held without bond, Wake County records showed, because he is listed as a probation absconder after being convicted in Cumberland and Wake counties a year ago for thefts from a store.
