Raleigh police seek BP robber

Posted April 3, 2011

— Raleigh police are trying to identify a man seen in surveillance photos who they say robbed a BP gas station last week.

Police said a light-skinned black male in his 40s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 170 pounds, entered the BP at 2750 S. Wilmington St. around 7 a.m. on March 29. He approached the counter, shoved the clerk and stole money from the cash register, police said. 

He reportedly fled in a dark-colored car.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 919-834-HELP. CrimeStoppers pays cash reward for anonymous tips that help solve cases.

    I'vehad enough of Raleigh..the tough economy and the lack of any moral ethics amongst the lower class citizens of this area are SO detracting from what's good about this place. Want to know who the probelm is? Just look at all the mug shots provided so graciously by WRAL for the Wake County arrests. Why are the jails so ful of these people? BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES COMMITTING A MAJORITY OF THE CRIMES..against their own people and anyone else they find to be weaker or can easlity take advantage of....waste of air!!!

    Spent a lot of time going through this area when I went to wake tech. There are a lot of rotton apples running around.
