— Durham police investigators are trying to find James Preston Green III who was charged with a May 5 robbery at the GameStop on North Pointe Drive.

Two men entered the store around 10:35 a.m. on May 5 and browsed around until the other customers left, police said. The men then pulled their hoods down to cover their faces, pulled out handguns and demanded money and video games from the employees.

The men forced the employees to lie on the floor, police said.

On May 21, investigators charged Antoine Alston, 22, of Fiske Street, and Green, 20, of Magnolia Drive, each with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of second-degree kidnapping.

Green also stays in Chapel Hill and Creedmoor, police said.

Anyone with information on Green’s whereabouts is asked to call Investigator J.R. Salmon at 560-4582, ext. 226 or Crime Stoppers at 683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
