'Robbery notes' found in suspected bank robbers' car

Posted April 12, 2012

— Police found what they described as "robbery notes" in the car belonging to two men suspected of robbing two Raleigh banks last week, according to a search warrant.

A PNC Bank branch on Capital Boulevard was robbed on April 4, and a Bank of America branch on Oberlin Road in Cameron Village was held up the following day.

In both cases, witnesses told police that the robber fled in a white Ford Taurus waiting nearby, according to the application for the search warrant. A police officer spotted a car fitting that description parked outside a motel on New Bern Avenue a few hours after the Bank of America robbery.

Two men were detained at the motel, and investigators identified one as the robber based on security video from both banks, the warrant application states.

William Clinard Shore, 29, of Clayton, and Bobby Edward Shaw, 33, of Raleigh, were charged with both robberies. Investigators say Shore robbed the banks and Shaw drove the getaway car.

In addition to the "robbery notes," a search of the Taurus and the motel room turned up an undisclosed amount of cash, a hat, sunglasses, a black bag, a cellphone, a copy of Shore's driver's license, a Social Security card and a wallet, the search warrant states.
