"You look familiar..." Police say recognition put armed robber behind bars | Crime
SALISBURY - Police say a man robbed a store that he had just visited as a customer a few days before. The clerk recognized him, and that led to his arrest.
David Alan Burris, Jr., is being held under $50,000 bond, charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Police say he robbed the Pit Stop on S. Main Street on Sunday night, then robbed the Fast Stop on S. Main Tuesday night.
One of the clerks told WBTV that she was terrified when Burris came into the store. She said that Burris held at her at gunpoint while demanding the money from the cash register. The clerk told WBTV that she has been afraid to work since the robbery, but credited her manager with being very helpful to her.
