Armed robber hits Burger King in Garner

Police were looking for a tall, thin suspect Thursday who they said was armed with a small pistol when he robbed a Burger King on Benson Road.

The robbery happened shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday in the restaurant at 1566 Benson Road, officials said, and the gunman left with an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber was described as between 6-foot-2 and 6-foot-4, black, in his late 20s or early 30s, slim and wearing a red shirt with black horizontal stripes.

The man had a mustache, beard and dreadlocks, but police suspected the hair may have been a disguise.

They asked that anyone who has information that could help police find the man to call 919-772-8810.
