Suspect Arrested For Two Lenoir County Robberies, More Charges Likely

A suspect is arrested for a pair of Lenoir County robberies.

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested 29-year-old Steven E. Wilson of Kinston on Sunday after deputies responded to the Family Dollar in La Grange for a robbery in-progress.  The sheriff’s office and Kinston Police Department set up a perimeter and used a KPD canine to track Wilson to an abandoned home on James Street in La Grange.

The ensuing investigation reportedly linked Wilson to a December 9th robbery that occurred at the Dollar General Store on Highway 11/55 in Kinston.  Wilson faces charges including Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon and Second Degree Kidnapping.  He was confined at the Lenoir County Jail under a $225,000 secured bond.

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office says Detectives are working to determine if there are any other suspects in these robberies and if there are any links to other incidents.  Additional charges are expected in the coming days.
