Lancaster County Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested, Also Charged With Multiple Crimes In Other NC Jurisdictions
UPDATE: Suspect arrested and charged with robbing a 7-Eleven on Charlotte Highway also faces multiple charges from other North Carolina jurisdictions.
Henry Duls, 31, of Monroe was arrested early Saturday morning, according to officials, after he was found at a relative’s home in Matthews. Duls was identified by surveillance footage from several other crimes, according to officials, and was driving a rented Dodge Dart that also matched the description of the one used during the Indian Land robbery.
Similar robberies and crimes are being investigated by several other agencies including CMPD, Pineville Police Department, Matthews Police, and the Union County Sheriff’s Office. According to officials, Duls is also the suspect in those investigations.
Lancaster County deputies say the warrant charging Duls for the Indian Land robbery has not been served yet, but a detainer has been placed on him while he is being held at the Mecklenburg County Jail on other charges. No word on when he will be brought to Lancaster County.
INDIAN LAND, SC — Lancaster County Sheriff’s Deputies are looking for the man they say robbed a 7-Eleven at gunpoint Friday morning.
According to reports, the suspect entered the 7-Eleven on Charlotte Highway around 2am, shopped around, and then acted as though he was going to buy a pack of gum. When the clerk opened the register, deputies say he pulled a gun and demanded money. The suspect then took off in a late model dark colored car, possibly a Dodge Dart, heading south on US 521.
No shots were fired, and no one was injured.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 5’6 and 5’8, a scruffy face. He was last seen wearing a dark ball cap with writing on the front, a gray hoodie, a dark t-shirt under the hoodie with a design on the front, dark pants, and dark shoes.
Officials say the same suspect is wanted by CMPD for a 7-Eleven armed robbery at the Promenade Shopping Plaza near the intersection of I-485 and Highway 16. That robbery happened around midnight.
