MURFREESBORO NC January 11 2019 – A security guard is behind bars for his involvement in a November armed robbery.
Murfreesboro Police Chief David Griffith reported Wyoming Gilliam of Aulander was working as a security guard at 158 Sweeps, an internet sweepstakes café in Murfreesboro, when it was robbed around 3 a.m. on Nov. 25.
An undisclosed amount of money was taken.
In the course of the investigation, MPD Det. Bryan Johnson connected Gilliam to the crime.
He was charged on Dec. 30 with conspiracy to commit armed robbery with a dangerous weapon, aide and abet an armed robbery, and violation of a city ordinance.
The first two charges are felonies while the ordinance violation is a misdemeanor.
Griffith said the ordinance violation stemmed from Gilliam shooting his issued weapon as a security guard into the air.
