— Clayton police were looking for a suspect in a robbery Wednesday at the Auto Zone on U.S. Highway 70W Business.

Witnesses told police that a Hispanic man with a dark complexion, short hair and sideburns held up the store at gunpoint and escaped with money from the register.

The suspect was described as about 5 foot 6 inches tall and in his mid-20s to mid-30s. He was wearing a dark brown baseball cap with the letters RW on it, dark blue jeans and a T-shirt.

An employee said the man showed a semi-automatic handgun, but no one was injured. He ran from the store on foot, witnesses said.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Clayton Police Department at 919-553-4611. Callers may also contact Clayton Crime Stoppers at 359-8479. A cash reward of up to $2,500 is offered for information that leads to the arrest of those responsible. Callers may remain confidential.

    O MY GOD IM in disbelief that people find any little thing to talk about the outcome of an election. Its time to move on and grow up. No matter what side of the high or low income u r on you have to trust in God that things will be okay. Everyone has been effected by this. NOT TO MENTION I (THE WIFE OF THE EMPLOYEE ROBBED BY GUNPOINT & MOTHER OF HIS 4 CHILDREN) DID NOT READ ANY THING ABOUT WHAT WE AS PEOPLE CAN DO TO HELP A FELLOW MAN OR SOLVE THIS CRIME. EVERYONE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR POCKETS. THIS EMPLOYEE SUPPORTS HIS WHOLE FAMILY, THAT HAS FELT THE BURDEN OF CUT INCOME ALSO, AT THIS PLACE OF BUSINESS AND ESCAPED WITH HIS LIFE BY THE GRACE OF GOD TO CONTINUE HIS LIFE. I THANK THE LORD EVERYDAY THAT IT DID NOT GO ANOTHER WAY!!!! THERE WERE OTHER CUSTOMERS THAT WERE THERE TO AND THEIR LIVES WERE SPARED. (THANK GOD) PLEASE STOP ALL THE STEREOTYPES & RACISM & HATRED I WILL PRAY FOR THAT!!! SORRY FOR ANY TYPO OR CONFUSION VERY EMOTIONAL AND UPSETTING TO READ UR COMMENTS

    savannahglover - Thank you. Actually the point is the cost of criminals and their ILLEGAL activity and the direct impact it has on us. Illegal aliens are committing crimes, their gangs (Sur13) is said to be the most dangerous and vile. Hardened criminals let out time and time again to commit more crimes. Get harsh. Crack down. Reduce crime. Then, the economy will improve, because the direct, indirect, and opportunity costs are extremely high.

    Yes, boingc, my federal taxes DO go to these institutions and to the prisons for "educational rehab". It's called the FEDERAL PELL Grants. Also, there are other types of federal and state aid available to "those in need", while well-qualified, motivated, achieving kids are not allowed entry because they make too much, but not quite enough ... if you want to challenge me, then get YOUR facts straight!

    "yeah to pay for Mr Bush's Iraq War. Get over it Obama won!"

    Ya, enjoy that history making event while it lasts. I doubt you'll see a non-white democrat back in as president for a long time. It won't be worth the risk for the sake of making history.

    I get robbed every two weeks and on April 15th by Obama, so I know how AutoZone feels

    yeah to pay for Mr Bush's Iraq War. Get over it Obama won!

  • working for deadbeats Sep 16, 2010

    It's hilarious how touchy you Obamafreaks are. Bwahahahaha!

    McCain is a progressive watered down democrat, so I probably would.

  • C_Felix Sep 16, 2010

    @ That's great.

    Would you have typed your comment in McCain won?

    Something tells me no.

    It is amazing how everyone seems to be targeting Wolfheel Tarpack, when he only typed words of truth. I ask the same questions that he did-and have the exact same thoughts that he did. Is that racial profiling? NO The questions and thoughts come from observance of what I have personally witnessed, just like many others up here have, but are just to chicken to admit it. I am glad that there is someone who is willing to stand up and think like an "AMERICAN." "Gork"-Thank God that some people voted for McCain and Palin-I sure did! It gives people hope to know that there are level headed people in the world that WANT the best for this country and support what it was founded on!!!! Look at what you wonderful people that voted for Obama caused. Did you think that he was going to pay your bills as well?
