WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police are searching for a man in connection with the robbery of a Winston-Salem business Tuesday morning.

Officers responded to the Waughtown Market, located at 67 Waughtown St., around 10:20 a.m. in reference to an armed robbery.

The store clerk told officers a man entered the store and asked to purchase a cigar. When the clerk opened the register, the suspect produced a handgun and reached over the counter, taking an undisclosed sum of currency.

The suspect fled the scene on foot east on Waughtown Street. K-9 track was not attempted due to heavy foot traffic in the area.

The suspect was described as a black male in his early 20s, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall with a medium build, wearing a white T-shirt, black baseball cap and tan or yellow work boots at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.

    Someone has to recognize this idiot. Seems he is proud of himself. Well, no sense in the law catching him – they wouldn’t do anything w him. Waste of time!

    I’ll bet you five dollars to a doughnut, if they would look at the mugshot book they would find his picture there.

  • Daniel Rehmeyer

    Problem is, there are 100 people in that neighborhood who know exactly who he is, but they wont say a word, but let this guy kill or rob someone they know and they will start screaming that the cops do do ‘nothin’

  • Jason

    Yeah, I’m sure the brothas and sistas in Waughtown know exactly who he is and where he is hiding, but they wont turn him in. What’s it called? Honor among thieves.


    This guy is dead wrong, and obviously has no JOB…if he had a JOB, then he probably would not have done this, would you? Now, some will say that he has no job because he probably has no education, ergo nothing to offer an employer; but, how many highly educated unemployed people do you know? Maybe lack of “education” is not the reason this individual has no job, maybe he has greater challenges getting a job because many offering jobs want nothing to do with black men, maybe this guy is no “scumbag”, and maybe someday a security camera will capture YOU pointing a gun at it…stranger things have been known to happen.


    Don’t get me wrong, I am not defending this guy’s bad choices, but when things go wrong (all the time) it’s time to step back and look for causes, and not at effects…it’s time to stop with the knee jerk and inflammatory reactions, unless of course that’s exactly what turns you on.


    Some will say “I’ve had it rough too, but robbing a person or business or stealing from one never crossed my mind.”…and I am glad to know that many are as strong as they are; but, should everyone have been built to YOUR specifications? Do you find it strange or wrong that others may react to stimuli differently from the way you would or do? Should we all be clones, and if so, then clones on what basis? Again, this guy, by my lights and probably yours, was dead wrong, but once the milk leaves the cow, there’s no getting it back in; now, if we don’t want “spilled milk”, then don’t you think it a good idea to find out what causes the spilling in the first place?

    A final thought: Of course those with the power to do something about the “spilling” know exactly how to prevent it; but, for obviously selfish, perverse, and depraved reasons, they will not lift a finger toward that end, and they will in fact and indeed do the exact opposite. They are of course insane, and orders of magnitude more dangerous than the fool we see here…+1 million, and counting, dead Iraqi civilians, anybody?

      Oh, brother…what a load of drivel. Something tells me you wear a bow tie when you type junk like this.

    • Will Grant

      You’re wrong, “AKHENATEN.” You seem to be wrong on this board even more than you were in algebra class.


        Not that it matters a whit, WILL GRANT, but it just so happens that I aced not only Algebra, but Trigonometry, the Calculus, and Statistics too! Now, put that in your KKKrack Pipe and SMOKE IT!


        “You seem to be wrong…” seem to be? Why not “You’re positively… ” or “definitely”? I’ll tell you why, it is because you know that it is you who is wrong, that’s why.


    +1 million, and counting, dead Iraqi civilians, “We came, we saw, he died! Hehehehe” Madame Secretary Clinton, untold numbers of Afghan civilian dead (we don’t do body counts anymore–Pentagon), “Wedding Party Death by CIA Drones” in Yemen…drivel and junk you say? And, the fool reported on here is the worst thing that ever came down the pike? YUP…hooded sheet alright! Well, it’s either that or “clueless”, no? Either way, you are part of the problem, and not the solution.

    Good morning!
