WILLIAMSTON, N.C. - The search is on for the armed robber who held up the Harris’ Food Mart in Williamston.

It happened Tuesday morning just before noon.

Deputies say a black male, about 6’0” tall, thin build, entered the store wearing a white “do-rag” and his face covered by a blue bandana. He was also wearing a white shirt and dark colored pants.

The suspect demanded money from two employees at gunpoint before he fled the scene in a white passenger car. It’s believed he may have traveled south on US Hwy 17 towards Beaufort County or south on Bear Grass Road.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
