The man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect was assumingly, and poorly inspired by the 1996 film, “Set it Off” with Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox, Kimberly Elise, and Jada Pinkett. The suspect was wearing a dark, curly-synthetic-wig, a pink jacket, peacock feather print leggings, a surgical mask, and sunglasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Crabtree at (919) 560-4583, ext. 29356 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
