A man being sought in a Durham store robbery in which armed men bound employees with plastic ties was arrested in Raleigh on Thursday afternoon.
Enio Bernardino Rodriguez, 37, was taken into custody on arrest warrants charging him with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault by pointing a gun, four counts of second-degree kidnapping and one count each of felony conspiracy and communicating threats.
Durham police swore out the warrants for Rodriguez, who lives in Raleigh, after investigating a July 2 holdup at Lagos Meat Market at 3438 Hillsborough Road.
They said two men entered the store about 9 p.m. and took cash from the business and cash and cell phones from workers.

The men used plastic “zip” ties to restrain the employees, police said.
Durham police had found information that Rodriguez lived on Apache Drive. When arrested, his address was listed as 2911 Millbrook Woods.
Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said a second suspect was still being sought.
Rodriguez was being held in Wake County in lieu of $290,000 bail before being turned over to Durham authorities.
