Thousands stolen during Raleigh Food Lion robbery, police say


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh police confirmed a suspect stole several thousand dollars from the Food Lion on Western Boulevard early Thursday morning.

Just after 7:15 a.m., police said an employee was counting money when the suspect pushed that employee to the ground and took the cash.

A witness told CBS North Carolina he saw the man run away with a large amount of cash.

“There’s nothing I could do. I was too far away. There was a lot of stuff in the way. He was close to an exit. I didn’t know if he was armed,” said witness Sean Karp.

The suspect was not armed and no injuries were reported.

CBS North Carolina will update this story as it develops.WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON:
