On March 6 of this year, the Market Basket convenience store on Grace Chapel Road in Granite Falls was robbed. A white male dressed in a gray sweatshirt and black pants with a bandanna over the bottom half of his face and a toboggan on his head walked into the store and pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money. The man fled on foot after the robbery.

Since the robbery, no leads have developed. The same suspect is believed to have committed a similar robbery in Catawba County two weeks later.

The Caldwell Co. Sheriff’s Office has released a photo of a person of interest in the case. The man in the photo is wearing a flat bill Pittsburgh Pirates hat.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the identity of the person in the photo should call the Caldwell Co. Sheriff’s Office at 828-759-1526 or Crime Stoppers at 828-758-8300. Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward.
