Despite Delano Little mistaking which player was wearing the No. 6 jersey for Butler— it was Jahwan Edwards and not Deion Walker—WBTV still has good highlights of the Bulldogs’ win last night over Vance. Walker resigned from the team earlier this season because of an off-the-field incident and Edwards was honoring his friend.
Mint Hill Police released photos yesterday of the suspect in the armed robbery of Lowes Foods on Wednesday. One employee saw a black male sitting outside on a park bench wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and white and black shoes before the store opened. Upon unlocking the door for the beginning of the day, the male came inside wearing a white mask armed with a black handgun demanding employees turn over the money. The suspect left the store in an unknown direction of travel with an undisclosed amount of money that was taken from the store.
The still-shots are from video footage that was captured of the suspect during the robbery. Contact Mint Hill Police at 704-545-1085 or Police Dispatch at 704-889-2231 with any information on this incident.
