Armed robbery suspect sought in Currituck

On Monday afternoon, Currituck County Sheriff Matthew Beickert said all available resources were being used to find an armed robbery suspect. The suspect, described as a black male, fled into a wooded area near Coinjock following a robbery and police chase.

Beickert said the incident began just after 9:30 Monday morning when the armed suspect approached a person in front of the Food Lion in Grandy and robbed a computer tablet from the person. The suspect then fled in a truck that had been stolen in Chesapeake, Va.

During the police chase, the suspect pulled into a parking lot and ran into the wooded area. Beickert said no gun was recovered from the stolen vehicle and they are assuming the suspect was still armed.
