A man is behind bars this morning after police say he robbed a local convenient store.

Greenville Police say around 11:00 pm on Thursday September 12 they responded to the report of an armed robbery at the Landmark Grocery on East Fifth Street.  Patrol officers established a perimeter around the neighborhood, and one of the officers saw the suspect running in the area of N. Elm St. and Willow St.  Officers used a police K-9 to track the suspect.  Items dropped by the suspect were found along the track, including money taken in the robbery and the semi-auto handgun used.  The suspect was located by the K-9 while hiding in the bed of a pickup truck on N. Meade St.  

The suspect was identified as Christian Marquel Dyer.  Detectives from the Major Crimes Unit responded to follow up on the case.  Dyer was arrested and charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Dyer has prior arrests for robbery, conspiracy, drug offenses, child abuse, fleeing to elude police, reckless driving, and larceny.

He was jailed at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond.
