WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Just after the Kangaroo Station at 2028 Oleander Drive opened Sunday morning, a man armed with a handgun and wearing a Spiderman mask robbed the convenience store.

Responding WPD units closed in, but they were unable to intercept the robber. A WPD K-9 team attempted a track in the area, but lost the trail a block or two from the store. Officials say that, it is possible that the robber drove to the neighborhood and parked, then walked a short distance to the store.

This robbery was similar to three previous incidents that happened in recent weeks. As in the other cases, the robber took cash and several cartons of Newport cigarettes.

Anyone with information about this case or other similar incidents is asked to call the Wilmington Police Department at 910-343-3600. Information may be submitted anonymously through Text-A-Tip. Enter Tip708 and the information, and send to CRIMES (274637).
