One suspect has been arrested after a victim was forced at gunpoint to withdraw money from an ATM in Carrboro in June, according to law enforcement.
Police records show 26-year-old Tyrone Jackson Jr., of Burlington, was arrested on August 6 by Carrboro Police and charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of kidnapping – both felony charges. Jackson was also wanted on several charges in Alamance County, according to an arrest report.
Police Captain Chris Atack said in an email that the Carrboro charges stemmed from that June incident involving the ATM and that the investigation is ongoing.
“We are still actively investigating this case as there were additional suspects involved,” Atack said.
An incident report stated that the victim was threatened with a handgun in the 100 block of South Greensboro Street with the suspect threatening that “they would kill him” before taking property from the victim. Atack did not say how many additional suspects were thought to be involved.
Anyone with additional information regarding the Carrboro investigation is asked to call (919) 918-7417 and speak to Investigator Ward or Crime Stoppers at (919) 942-7515.
Jackson was given a $200,000 secured bond and was scheduled to make a court appearance Monday morning.
