Authorities are searching for a man they say robbed a convenience store.

Authorities say Mo’s Mart, located at 2098 Belgrade-Swansboro Road in Maysville, was held up at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday by an armed man who stole cash and drove off in an SUV.


The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a white man wearing a dark gray hoodie over a red shirt with a red bandana across his face, and dark pants. He was driving a silver SUV with black trim around the bottom with a long scratch down the driver's side, according to a press release. The vehicle did not have a license plate displayed.

Thomas said “a small amount of money from the cash register” was stolen after the robber pointed a handgun at the clerk.
