In each case, police said, a man handed a note to an employee demanding money. He also displayed a weapon in at least two of the holdups. Last Saturday, he left both businesses without taking any money.

    Criminal record dating back to 1994, and never served a SINGLE day in jail. Wow, our justice system is such a joke.

    Obamacare for one and all. I`m pretty sure you could call these 4-robberies and 2 attempted ones in North Raleigh general area. Gun was displayed in at least 2 of the robberies. Make sure to lock your doors and hide the jewels as this was in your backyard. None of these robberies were in Durham and the person was a Raleigh resident to boot...Good job RPD for catching the guy and getting him off the street. Hope the courts don't have him back out soon.
