— A Zebulon man has been charged in the robbery of a Rite Aid earlier this week. 

Police said a robber entered the store at 320 N. Arendell Ave. just after 8 p.m. Monday. He indicated to a store clerk that he was armed, then demanded money. The robber fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.

No one was injured.
