— Police have asked for the public's help in finding a man wanted in about a dozen robberies of convenience and grocery stores.

Detectives believe that Harold Ronald Davis, 44, robbed businesses, including Walgreen's, CVS, Rite-Aid, Family Dollar, Big Lots and Food Lion.

Davis was described as a black man standing 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighing about 230 pounds. He has brown eyes, a short beard and mustache. He wore a blue jean jacket during most robberies.

Davis drives a 2006 silver Ford 500 sedan, police said.

Anyone with information about Davis' whereabouts was urged to call Det. Kellie Berg at 910-433-2315 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers never have to identify themselves.

Davis has been convicted of burglary, breaking-and-entering or larceny nine times since 1981, according to the state Department of Correction records. He was most recently released from jail in November 2007. He has also been convicted of second-degree kidnapping.
