Deputies investigate early morning armed robbery at seafood store


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a report of an early-morning armed robbery at a business on Carolina Beach Road.

Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer says the call came in at 6:39 a.m. from Seaview Crab Company at 6458 Carolina Beach Road. Brewer says an employee says he went outside to get some ice when two men walked up and said they had a weapon. The men reportedly took the worker back inside and wanted to get into the safe, but the employee did not have access to it. Brewer says they took money from the cash register and left.

Anyone with information should call the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office.
