The cashier complied and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect then ran out of the store and was last seen running towards Harris Teeter. No one was hurt in the incident.
Officers with the Boone Police Department – with assistance from the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office – responded to the scene and searched the area without success. Detectives from the Boone Police Department also responded and currently the investigation is ongoing. While photos of the crime have been released, Capt.
