Harris Teeter robberies in North Carolina and Aldie could be linked

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a possible link between a string of Harris Teeter armed robberies in North Carolina and the July 17 heist in the Stone Ridge community.

A spokesperson with the Sheriff’s Office on Friday confirmed the investigation.

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office today released the video of the July 17 in progress. The men robbed the store in the 42000 block of Village Center Plaza about 2:20 a.m. July 17.

They entered the store with their faces covered and one was carrying a gun. During the robbery, reports say one Harris Teeter employee was pushed to the ground, but was not injured.

The two men forced their way into two cash registers and and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Harris Teeter Inc. is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest of the two men responsible for the July 17 armed robbery of the store in Stone Ridge community in Aldie.

Harris Teeter also is offering a reward of $75,000 for information leading to the arrest of the persons responsible for multiple robberies in three North Carolina stores.

Three stores in the Charlotte area were robbed during an eight-day span in May, according to WCNC News Channel 36 in Charlotte.

In one incident on May 29, two men fired shots in a south Charlotte store before robbing it, the station reported. Earlier in May two additional stores were robbed at gunpoint.

In addition to the three robberies in Charlotte, there have been reports of five others in Greensboro, two in High Point and one in Winston-Salem.

There were also similar robberies in South Carolina, but the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office couldn’t confirm a link to that robbery at this time.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about this robbery to contact Detective T. Sheffer of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475.
