GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Heavy police presence at a Greensboro apartment complex is in response to an armed robbery.
Greensboro police say two men robbed the Great Stops gas station on W. Market Street around 1 a.m., armed with handguns. They took an undisclosed amount of cash and various items.
The suspects left the scene in a gray sedan and police say they traced them back to the Advenir at Adams Farm apartment complex, where now dozens of officers have gathered.
Residents are concerned about the crime in the area. Last month a man was arrested for allegedly having a ‘clandestine laboratory’ in his apartment in the same complex.
“This is like the 3rd incident in the past six to eight weeks. You have elderly people, handicapped people, we have never had this much attention, traffic, crime, police cars. I had already made up my mind that it is time to go but this takes it to the next level,” a resident, Roberta Byrd, told FOX8.
It is a very active scene, with SWAT and armored vehicles arriving recently.
