Police: Man steals cash along with cash register out of local business

A guy stole “the entire cash register” by a Winston-Salem business after pepper-spraying the clerk early Saturday morning, authorities said.

The guy entered the G Tobacco Shop in 7842 North Point Boulevard shortly before 2 a.m. and left using all the cash register and the undisclosed amount of money indoors before fleeing in a vehicle, possibly an older-model gold-colored Honda, authorities said.

The store clerk was treated by emergency personnel in the scene for exposure to pepper spray, but did not have any further injuries.

Police are looking for the guy, who is called 5-foot-7, about 200 lbs and who had been sporting a black hat and a white and black colored shirt.

Anyone with further information is asked to contact CrimeStoppers in 336-727-2800.
