Durham police are searching for a man in his 40s or 50s, about 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a light-colored jacket, dark pants and a hat.

E.K. Poe Elementary School, at 913 9th St., was briefly locked down when police responded to the area, Durham Public Schools officials said.

    You can thank these guys for harboring a bank robber in a once peaceful neighborhood:


    The bank robber fled to this house on 1116 Iredale. Can these churches just setup shop anywhere? Without a permit? Without an announcement to the community that, sorry you just paid $500k for your house, you now live next to a child molestor, rapist, bank robber etc!

    Looks like the fella would have at least worn a mask.

    Here we go again, the left winged liberal WRAL media, continuing to not report the FACTS about a crime, the pictures appear to be a black male, I guess you guys did not see that and put it in your description of the suspect. WTVD did???
