Durham, N.C. — A man wanted in a residential theft and retail robbery in Durham was captured Tuesday after being on the run for a week, police said.
Peter Warren Chambers, 23, of Mahone Street, was caught on Lydias Way after a short foot chase, Durham police said.
Officers had been asking for the public’s help in locating Chambers, who is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of kidnapping.
