LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) – The Lumberton Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying two men suspected of robbing McNeill's Jewelry Store inside Biggs Park Mall on July 24.
Detective Charles Leavitt says one of the suspects distracted the sales person while the other grabbed a tray of rings from inside the display counter. After, the second suspect placed the rings inside a plastic shopping bag and exited the store; the first suspect then spoke to the salesperson briefly, before he exited the store.
