Wake County sheriff's deputies were looking Tuesday for a man who used a handgun to rob a Dollar General store near Garner on Memorial Day night.
The man, described as Hispanic, heavily built and standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall, went into the store at 3628 Benson Road, south of Ten Ten Road, about 9:30 p.m. and showed a clerk who was working there a semiautomatic handgun, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said in a statement.
The robber demanded the clerk open the cash register, then grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and ran from the store, Harrison said the clerk told deputies.
The robber was wearing a dark jacket and dark pants, wore black gloves and had a gray bandana over the lower half of his face.
