LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Two people were robbed at gunpoint while trying to sell shoes to two unknown suspects in the parking lot of Walmart at 7131 NC 73 Hwy Wednesday afternoon (November 17, 2021).

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Detective D. Hendrix reported the victim and a friend met with two unknown suspects around 3:30 p.m. after making arrangements through social media to sell them tennis shoes valued at $640.  The parties met at the victim’s car to look at the tennis shoes.

While the victim was showing the shoes both suspects pulled handguns with extended magazines and demanded the shoes as well as any money the victims may have.  The victim did not have cash so the suspects fled with the shoes in a black in color Honda passenger car.  They pulled out of the parking lot but the victim did not get a direction of travel.

The suspects are described as follows:

  • Offender 1 is a black male, 6 feet tall with wavy black hair.  He also had braces on his teeth and was wearing a gray hoodie and gray jeans.
  • Offender 2 is a shorter black male wearing a gray hoodie and possibly purple athletic pants with a white stripe down the side.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Detective D. Hendrix at 828-455-6762 or Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050, Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202 or Lincolnton/Lincoln County CrimeStoppers at 704-736-8909.
