WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) – Police are looking for a man they say knocked off two discount stores in the Whiteville area.
Andre Freeman is wanted by the Whiteville Police in connection to an armed robbery at the Family Dollar store on JK Powell Boulevard Friday night. Freeman is also thought to be the man behind a robbery at a Dollar General from earlier this month.
According to police, Freeman approached the cashier to purchase a drink, then pulled out a gun and demanded the cashier give him money from the cash register.
Several other "dollar" stores have been robbed already this year in Fair Bluff, Clarkton, Dublin, and Horry County, South Carolina.
"Places like Family Dollar and Dollar General, you can go in and they're usually not that populated. People are usually in and out quickly," explained Scott Moody with the Whiteville Police Department. "So, they think they can get a quick grab and get away."
Freeman is also suspected of taking money from Walmart.
If you see Andre Freeman, contact the Whiteville Police Department.
