Multiple people were arrested Friday in Greensboro in connection with a string of robberies this week that targeted drug stores, including ones in Chapel Hill and Raleigh.
Kalil Barrino, 18, Jelani Dye, 18, Jaeln Crowder, 20, and Christian Sarpy, 19, are charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to a news release. A fifth person was released after police determined he was not involved in the robberies, Greensboro police Lt. J.L. Raines said Saturday.
The Chapel Hill robbery occurred at about 2:30 a.m. Monday at the CVS at the corner of Fordham Boulevard and Ephesus Church Road. One of the robbers was wearing a “Jason mask,” police said, referring to the horror movie character.
About an hour later, the robbers struck the CVS at 2411 Landmark Drive in Raleigh’s Lake Boone Shopping Center. Two robbers entered the store and demanded money from the clerk. They took off with cash, police said.
