Search for hooded gunman ongoing

Deputies remain on the hunt for a man who they said robbed a convenience store at gunpoint last month in Lincolnton.

The store clerk at Ricky’s Food Mart on Gastonia Highway described the suspect as a 5-foot-10-inch white male with blue eyes and a slim build, authorities said.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the suspect entered the store just before 10 p.m. on Sept. 25 and demanded that the clerk hand over the store’s money.

The employee also told deputies that the man was wearing a blue hoodie and tapped a gun on the counter.

The man fled the store with an unknown amount of cash, deputies said, and it is not clear whether or not he escaped the property in a vehicle or on foot.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts or a possible suspicious person or vehicle in the area that night is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050 or Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909.

Tips may remain anonymous, and any tip leading to an arrest could receive a reward of up to $1,000.
