Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor announced today that a Fayetteville man has been arrested for a robbery at a local liquor store.

            On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, Fayetteville police officers responded to the Medicap Pharmacy at 2811 W. Martin Luther King Boulevard for an attempted robbery.   Security camera footage showed that the suspect was wearing a mask as he approached the business but crouched by the building and removed the mask when a delivery driver entered the store.  The suspect entered the store but then left a short time later without conducting any business.  The suspect left the area on a black motorcycle.  

On Thursday, August 25, 2011, Fayetteville police officers responded to Friendly Liquor at 816 N. College Avenue for a robbery.   The suspect entered the business and displayed a weapon and demanded money from the clerk.   The suspect left the area northbound on N. College Avenue on a black motorcycle, but not before the clerk was able to get the license plate number on the motorcycle. 

On August 29, 2011, Andrew GIBBS-DABNEY contacted the Fayetteville Police Department in reference to his picture being on the news because of the incident at Medicap Pharmacy.  After interviewing GIBBS-DABNEY, a search warrant was executed at his residence at 1225 N. Maxwell.   Evidence obtained at the residence linked GIBBS-DABNEY to both incidents.   GIBBS-DABNEY was arrested for one count of Aggravated Robbery and one count of Theft of Property.
