Man dies during business robbery in Calabash

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

CALABASH, NC (WWAY) — A man is dead after an early-morning robbery near Calabash, but the circumstances surrounding his death have investigators working overtime.

Around 5:45 a.m. Brunswick County deputies were dispatched to an armed robbery at Winners World sweepstakes parlor.

According to a police report, two African-American males shown in surveillance video took an undetermined amount of cash before getting away.

Some time during the robbery an unidentified man at the store suffered a heart attack and died.

District Attorney Jon David says his office is investigating to see if there are any legal grounds to pursue murder or manslaughter charges against the robbery suspects.

NC work crew having tough time dismantling bridge Eds: APNewsNow

Thursday, November 29th, 2012


ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) – Work crews are finding that the people who built the Camden Causeway had no intention of letting it fall down.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reports (http://bit.ly/U38JL8) that N.C. Department of Transportation resident engineer Randy Midgett said the quality of workmanship that went into building the 1931 bridge is making it more difficult to take apart.

Midgett said the causeway bridge was put together and reinforced so well that crews with Atlanta-based Archer Western have had to resort to breaking it up instead of dismantling it piece-by-piece.

The eastbound bridge over the Pasquotank River connects Elizabeth City with Camden County. It will be replaced with a new bridge. Archer Western is facing a June 2015 deadline for completing the work, which includes upgrading the westbound bridge.
