— 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 Arby’s 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 woman’s cloned American Express credit card to buy $763 worth of merchandise a week before the Arby’s holdup.

A magistrate set Shore’s 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.
