Elijah Gerald Gayton, 21, was charged Tuesday with robbing a Walgreens drugstore on New Bern Avenue late last month.
Gayton, who gave authorities no permanent address, is accused of using a handgun and stealing $100 from a cashier on Nov. 27.
He was arrested after questioning at police detective headquarters and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and gun possession by a felon.
A magistrate set Gayton’s bail at $250,000.
The store is at 4408 New Bern Ave.
