Two charged in Garner robberies

Posted August 22, 2012

— Garner police have arrested one suspect and are looking for a second in connection with two robberies in the area.

Roy Dakota Locklear was arrested Wednesday on multiple counts of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Investigators have also issued arrest warrants on the same charges for Rodrecus Lamar Cannady.

Both men are accused of robbing the Han-Dee Hugo's on N.C. Highway 50 on Aug. 17 and the Cricket Wireless store on Fifth Avenue on Aug. 20.

In each case, police said, robbers entered the stores, threatened the clerks with a knife and left with money and personal property.

Investigators are following additional leads and more charges are expected, police said.

    Garner police are to blame. VERY secretive, not telling neighbors what the problem is currently. WRAL and Garner didn't even mention the "issue" yesterday, even though both were on site in North Garner. Too bad town council is more interested in affluent areas of Garner. Nice town infected by South Raleigh issues.

    We need to give these guys credit for not killing the clerks. Maybe there is hope after all.

    It looks like the criminal demographics in Garner are the same as Fayetteville.

    There's one nice community - around the Aversboro Coffee shop area. Good people there and the best coffee in the Triangle.

    I am so glad that we moved from Garner. This town is going down the wrong road!

    So sad. Life will only get harder for these fellows. Does any one ever try to get young people to think past their actions.

    try applying for a job instead of robbing the place next time. Unless you like working for 8 cents an hour in prison.
