Police Seek Dunkin' Donuts Robber

Posted May 31, 2007

— Raleigh police are looking for a man wanted in connection with a robbery of a Dunkin' Donuts store last week.

Two employees were in the store, at 3209 S. Wilmington St., at about 9 p.m. May 23 when the assailant entered, brandished a handgun, jumped over the counter, robbed the store and fled on foot.

Surveillance photos show a man in his 20s wearing a blue cap with a white emblem on the front and white lettering on the back. He stands about 5 feet 9 inches and weighs about 155 to 160 pounds.

He was wearing a long short-sleeved white shirt, black jeans rolled up at the bottom and black sneakers.

Anyone with information that might assist the investigation should contact the Raleigh Police Department at 919=890-3555 or Crime Stoppers at 919=226-CRIME.

    I cannot believe the comments. Here we have a guy commiting an armed robbery and all people can post is sick, lame comments. What would the comments be if someone had gotten shot during this?

    Well I, for one, agree completely with Sundaysailor.

    I’m just not quite as vocal....

    This is just as urgent as the Krispy Kreme truck theft last year. The Officers need their food on the go.

    Police obviously weren't hanging out at the donut shop THAT night!

    Sailor God spoke to me in a dream told me to personally tell you that he will be expecting in the near future and that he know what your doing with the neighbors dog is wrong and immoral!

    Still no god(s) or angels seen eating, ordering, paying for donuts, helping the cops out, or anything. Promoting unsolicited religion again? It does get old doesn't it?
