Man charged with stealing cash box from convenience store

Monday, September 19th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington police have arrested a man who is suspected of robbing the Kangaroo gas station on 17th street shortly after midnight on Friday.

54-year-old Leroy Thompson is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and related offenses. Police cay that Thompson entered the store and put his hand in his shirt, as if he had a gun. He then reached over and grabbed the cash box out of the register. The suspect left the store and got into a car across the street.
When police were able to stop the car, the suspect drove off before an officer approached him.

Officers were able to locate the cash box after a citizen alerted them that they had seen a man run by some houses with a black box. A short time later, police located the suspect hiding in some bushes beside a residence on the 1200 block of South 7th Street.

Thompson is currently being held in the New Hanover county detention facility on a $50,000 secure bond.

Monday, September 19th, 2011

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Division of Motor
Vehicles is looking for a contractor to operate a license plate
agency in Greensboro, where one was closed over allegations of
criminal activity.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that the DMV is accepting
applications to manage a second license
plate agency. The agency closed one office Sept. 9 after arresting
the manager and an employee on a total of nine felony charges of
notary fraud.

Greensboro drivers currently have only one office where they can
renew their license plates or register vehicles in person.

State DMV spokeswoman Marge Howell did not say when the new
office would open other than the process takes at least two to
three months. Applications are due by Oct. 14.
