Posted July 15, 2008

— Goldsboro police officers are trying to identify two men who robbed a Pantry convenience store early Tuesday.

The men entered the store, at 901 W. Grantham St., at about 4 a.m.

Both men – one of whom had a handgun – went across the counter and forcefully took money from the cash register, police said.

The men were described as black, in their late teens to early 20s and both appeared to be tall and skinny, police said. They left in a white, four-door vehicle.

    Isn't this the store next to the parking lot of the Highway Patrol Station?......

    yes it is, in fact that store has bullet proof glass that pulls down from the ceiling for late night hours and a lockable door, however The Pantry Management refuses to repair the lock on the door so using the bullet proof glass would be useless. The Pantry is at fault as well fro not protecting their employees

    As long as our government continues to pay welfare so people do not have to work these crimes will continue. Welfare, the root of all evil in this country.

    Will be tough to catch them with the "No Snitching" policy

    No, I think it is the one a couple of blocks down, when you go under the overpass and lose most of the traffic.

    Yes, they need to get caught an do a long stint in prison. Why can't these folks just go to school, graduate and get a real job like the rest of us? Why do they have to take the easy way out and steal from others? Where are their parents? Where is their respect for fellow human beings? It is so sad to see these lives ruined by poor choices when they are so young. Lock 'em up forever as they have no use in our society. Lost souls.

    I hope they catch these sorry hoodlums. If they are man enough to be so bad to point a gun in someone's face and take their money, then let them be bad in prison.
