Four men charged in Raleigh robbery

Posted February 12, 2009

— Raleigh police on Thursday charged four men in connection with a midnight robbery at the Pack Mart store, 515 Ashe Ave.

Police withheld the men's names.

A clerk at the store reported that four Hispanic men armed with guns took the cash drawer and left in a burgundy-colored car.

Officers found a car matching the clerk’s description a short time later near Saint Mary’s and Peace streets. They arrested the men and recovered the stolen property.

    There is a need for more license check points across the nation. Let’s be clear when there was not a lot of illegal aliens in this country there was plenty of check points.

    "The difficulty in being certain you have the correct names" is because they more than likely have multiple fake IDs. If I get pulled over by a cop for something it would take two seconds to figure out who I am....nice try though.

    The obvious reason that the suspect's names have not been released is the difficulty in being certain you have the correct names. If the police released names with confirming the information, everyone would be complaining that they were incompetent. Interesting how people interpret things in a way that reflects what they believe not the facts.

    Guess you missed that part, districtcadvocate. Don't worry, I am sure the Mexican-American Legal Defense team and La Rasa will cover their court costs.

    "The Slammer"

    What a great publication and worth the $1 you pay for it. Great entertainment and laughs ... hope my photo's never in there!

    If they where white or Afro America or any other race except Hispanic their names and home address would have been posted with any priors charges.

    They must be of European descent, else you would see their mug shots all over the place. Oh well, the Slammer will showcase their appearance before the booking camera.
