Police: Man who robbed smoke shop at gunpoint gets away with cash


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police are investigating after they say a masked man robbed an area smoke shop at gunpoint last night and then ran off with cash from the register.

They say just before 10 p.m., a man wearing a bandanna over his face walked into Smoke Rings Smoke Shop at 1207 S. Kerr Avenue. That's when police say the man then pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and demanded money from the worker.

Police say once the man stole cash from the register, he took off running towards S. College Road. They say the robber, who was wearing dark clothing, a black hoodie with a black bandanna covering his face, is described as a 6'3" white man.

Wilmington Police are investigating, and ask anyone with information to call the Wilmington Police Department.
