Posted January 4, 2013

— A 44-year-old Fayetteville man was arrested Thursday after police say he robbed a chocolate shop on Hay Street. 

Sonny Dewayne Stetson, of the 300 block of Dick Street, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping. 

According to investigators, Stetson entered The Chocolate Lady about 4 p.m. and took money from the register before forcing an employee into a closet inside the store. 

No injuries were reported in the robbery, and Stetson was in the Cumberland County jail Friday under a $20,000 secured bond.

    I mentioned Gigi's on S Glenwood.

    The neighborhood has certainly gone downhill since they tore down Rick's and built the cop house.
