Police: Man killed after making ATM withdrawal

Posted April 22, 2009

— Police are investigating the shooting death of a man found slumped in his truck after he made an early morning withdrawal from an ATM in Lumberton.

Lumberton Police Lt. Johnny Barnes said Charles Rozier was found about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at Brandon's Quick Check, at 1925 E. 5th St., with a gunshot wound to his chest. A receipt showed Rozier, 46, of 1439 Regan Church Road in Lumberton, withdrew money from the State Employees Credit Union machine at 2:11 a.m.

Barnes didn't say how much money Rozier withdrew, but said his wallet was with him and had cash in it.

Barnes said the shooting was recorded on poor quality surveillance tape. Rozier was approached by two men after he got back in his truck. The tape showed the men opening the truck door and one of them shooting Rozier before they ran.

No arrests have been made.

    "One more life lost and one more reason to ban guns."

    Pass a law that one must be armed to use an ATM.

    That they took no money sounds like an execution.

    Praying for his loved ones.

    God bless.

    More and more crime everyday I read the news. This is really scarey. I do not own a firearm, but I am thinking maybe I should.

    I never understood the quality issue of tapes. I worked for a company many years ago that took the taoes when banks were robbed. You would think anyplace that has the potential to be robbed would get good quality cameras and place them in a spot to get a good view. Why all have top views and none of the parking lot and area around is beyond me. I hope all comapnies will put up some money and have better protections to stop these thugs. and try not to get money late at night like that.
    Prayers to the family.

    OMG! I agree with the rest of you. It just seems that with technology today why in the world can't they make surveilence cameras at banks in stores etc so you can see who is breaking the law or who murdered someone. It just makes no sense to me. God Bless this mans family. So sorry for your loss.

    Someone help me understand why the video surveillance cameras at banks and atms record such poor quality video. It just seems to me that with today's technology and the low cost of high resolution cameras, cheap hard drive space that police (and juries someday hopefully) would have better images to work with.

    This is the very reason I am Concealed Weapon permit person. I use all ATMs and drive up windows with one hand, my left.

    Most ATM machines restrict withdrawals’ to 200 to 300 within a 24 hour period of time. superman
    Not always true as the restrictions are placed from the bank not the ATM. knowing my back will allow up to 700 in 24 hours. Really though what is wrong with people these days.
