CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A man is being sought in connection with three armed robberies that happened at Rowan County convenience stores Wednesday.
The first robbery attempt happened just after 4 a.m. at a Kangaroo convenience store in China Grove. Police say nothing was taken during that incident. About 45 minutes later, around 5 a.m., a man went into the Rushco on Jake Alexander Blvd near I-85 in Salisbury and robbed the clerk at gunpoint.
The third robbery happened at the Pop’s Country Store on Hwy 601 in western Rowan County. Responding deputies used a K-9 to track the robber, but believe he ran to a nearby area then left in a vehicle.
Police believe all three robberies are related.
The robber is described by deputies as a white male in his early 20s. He has a slim build and clean-cut, dark hair. He was wearing a Converse track suit with a hood and had a red bandanna covering his face.
