CMPD: Man uses gun, crowbar to rob Charlotte Harris Teeter

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NBC Charlotte is learning more about an armed robbery at a Charlotte Harris Teeter.

Police said a man entered the Harris Teeter store on South Tryon at Steele Creek Road with a crowbar and gun around 4:30 a.m. Monday

A jewelry kiosk near the front entrance of the store was smashed. The suspect made off with jewelry. No one was injured during the robbery, police said.

Tuesday, CMPD's report said the suspect approached store employees outside the store and pointed a gun at one of them. He forced the workers inside the store and ordered the other one to break the display and put the items in a bag.

The victims told police the man ordered the second employee and a witness to do as he said or he'd shoot the first worker.

This is the third Harris Teeter that was robbed in the last month. Two mask men robbed two Harris Teeters in Cabarrus County in October.
