The second man in a week-old Shell station armed robbery was arrested Wednesday.
Justin Daniel Tobias, 21, of Charlotte, was arrested Wednesday morning at his girlfriend's Hickory home. Tobias was identified as the second suspect in Hickory Police's investigation.
The first arrested suspect, De'andra Ventredous Killebrew, 20, of Charlotte, turned himself into the Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department on April 8.
Killebrew and Tobias allegedly entered the Total Convenience Market on U.S. 70 SW in Hickory at 8:30 a.m. April 7, according to the Hickory Police Department.
One of the men allegedly showed a knife and demanded money from the three clerks who were inside the store at the time. Employees emptied the cash register for the suspects, and the men escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash and several packages of cigarettes.
Police said the suspects left the store on foot.
Killebrew is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and is in Catawba County jail under a $9,500 bond. His court date is April 28.
Tobias is also charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and is in jail on a $50,000 bond. He appears in court today.
