Police search for man involved in Burlington robbery

January 26, 2012 by  

Investigators in Burlington, North Carolina have a warrant for James Benjamin Bold, age 24, who they believe was involved in a robbery that involved using a stun gun on Saturday January 21. The police department of Burlington, North Carolina has used printing services to print flyers and posters regarding the robbery and distributed them throughout the town to encourage people in the local community to come forth with any information they may have regarding the incident. People are asked to call Crimestoppers at 336-229-7100 rather than the local police department.

Police responded to a 911 call last Saturday when the victim who lives in the 400 block of Logan Street in Burlington reported that robbers had invaded their home. The victim told police that the men forced their way into the home after answering a knock on the door. The time of the robbery was not reported but the victim said that there were three men and one of them had a stun gun and was trying to use it against him.

A struggle followed when the victim tried to defend himself. The victim told police that they were knocked down to the floor and two men held them in position while the third man went through the house and took whatever money he find and some additional belongings. The three men then fled from the scene and the victim was left uninjured.

Using the flyer printing and poster printing, the police and detectives are asking the local community for help in finding the person they believe is the primary suspect, Bolds. They are also looking for additional information on the other two men involved in the robbery who at this time remain unidentified.
