Harris Teeter Ups Reward After 10 Store Robberies


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Harris Teeter is increasing the reward for finding the robbers who have held up 10 of the grocery chain's stores at gunpoint in six months.

The company raised the reward for information leading to the arrest of the robbers to $75,000 on Tuesday.

The latest incidents happened in May when three Charlotte-area stores were robbed in just over a week. Ten of the stores have been hit since Christmas, and the seven previous armed robberies were in Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point.

Police wouldn't release how much cash was stolen, but say the robberies were linked.

Harris Teeter says it increased the reward to hopefully bring in more tips about the robberies. The Matthews-based grocery chain says it has beefed up security at its stores.
