Spring Lake, N.C. — Spring Lake police are looking for two men involved in a hold-up Monday night at a Marathon gas station at 668 N. Bragg Blvd. They have two suspects in custody but believe two others fled the scene.
Police said only James Travis Lindahl, 29, entered the store. He was wearing a black knit Batman mask. Lindahl pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money, then ran from the store.
A witness flagged down an officer on patrol and pointed out a white Buick Lacrosse, identifying it as having been at the convenience store minutes earlier.
When police stopped the car, two men ran. Two others in the car, Lindahl and Mark Anthony Jones, 27, surrendered.
Lindahl, of 134 N. Grogg St., faces charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and possession of firearm by a felon.
Jones, of 711 Eva Circle, was charged with aiding and abetting a robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Lindahl's bond was set at $80,000; Jones' bond is $60,000.
Police identified one of the other suspects as David John Autry, 26, of 1311 Buckeye Drive. The other they described as a black man known only as "E."
Anyone with information about Autry, "E" or the crime is asked to call the Spring Lake Police Department at 910-436-7167.
