North Carolina man sentenced to over 10 years in prison for robbery of convenience store

A Fayetteville man was sentenced March 10 to 130 months in prison for robbing an Exxon convenience store in Fayetteville, according to a press release from the Department of Justice, Eastern District of North Carolina.

According to court documents, on December 9, 2018, Tyler Kador, 23, and Morgan Ward, 22, robbed an Exxon convenience store.

“Kador, armed with a firearm, walked into the store and approached the clerk, who was behind the counter. Kador pointed the gun at her and demanded that she give him money. Ward entered the store behind Kador and looked down each [aisle] for anyone else present in the store. Ward saw a second employee and held her against a counter during the robbery.  The clerk behind the counter gave Kador approximately $50. Both clerks were ordered to lie on the floor and the men left the store,” stated the release. “Surveillance videos showed the two robbers getting into a car and driving to a nearby apartment complex. Investigators with the Fayetteville Police Department located the car and determined it was registered to Kador. Investigators were also able to determine the apartment the men went into and obtained a search warrant for that apartment. In that apartment officers found clothing consistent with the clothing worn by the robbers, ammunition and a gun box. The original purchaser of the firearm told investigators Kador purchased the firearm from him a few days before the robbery. Ward was arrested during the execution of the search warrant and confessed that he and Kador were the two that went inside the Exxon and robbed the business.”

Ward was sentenced on December 21, 2020 and received a sentence of 120 months followed by 60 months of supervised release.

G. Norman Acker III, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearm and Explosives and Fayetteville Police Department investigated the case and Assistant U.S. Attorney Charity Wilson prosecuted.
