WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police say a married couple has been arrested in a series of robberies that occurred over the past four months in Winston-Salem.

According to police, 22-year-old Randall Gray Webb and his wife, 30-year-old Dalia Marquez Bernal, both of 3034 Indiana Ave., are charged with robbing a total of eight businesses across the city.

Police say the two were arrested Tuesday after detectives identified them as the suspects in the most recent robbery, which was reported Sunday night at the J and J Food Mart at 2022 South Broad St.  Store employees told police one of the suspects approached a cashier and displayed a handgun before stealing an undetermined amount of cash.

  • Tienda Mexicana Rosy on Waughtown Street (Feb. 28)
  • Jay’s One Stop on Waughtown Street (March 4)
  • and the Editberta Morales food truck on Bloomfield Drive (April 2)

Both suspects have been charged in the above cases, along with 7 additional counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon.
