DURHAM, NC (WNCN) – Durham Police Department are investigating the armed robbery of a minor at a store on The Streets in Southpoint back in February, according to a search warrant obtained by CBS 17 Thursday.
The warrant, filed earlier this month, details the armed robbery that took place at Urban Outfitters on February 11 just after 6:30 p.m
According to court documents, a boy under the age of 18 was in the clothing store when two men came in behind him and stole his jewelry at gunpoint.
In follow-up interviews with detectives, the boy described his jewelry as “three large silver chains, two of them with gold pendants.”
He continued that the chains are unique because the pendants are custom made. The victim described one pendant as “a rose gold medallion stamped ‘Mulah Gang’ and the other as a yellow gold pendant stamped ’30 billion,'” according to the warrant.
The victim was able to describe the suspects and their clothing at the time of the robbery. Investigators went to the store to pull surveillance video and were able to see the suspects, which the victim described.
According to the search warrant, “the security footage showed no major discrepancies with the account [the victim] passed the robbery on to the two first responding patrol officers and [the investigator].”
About a week after the robbery, the investigator spoke to the victim again. During the conversation, the victim said “he found photos of two men carrying his stolen pendants” on social media and sent the photos to police, the warrant said.
The photos, sourced from Instagram, showed a man wearing both pendants and holding what appeared to be a black semi-automatic pistol.
The investigator was also sent a screenshot of a rap video made by a local rapper showing a burly man wearing the large “30 Billion” tag during the video for the song “Blood on My Shoes.”
According to the search warrant, the investigator handling the case forwarded the images to the Durham Police Department Gang Unit, who were then able to identify both men wearing the chains and pendants in the photos.
Court documents show both men have criminal histories.
CBS 17 does not name the men under investigation as suspects because none of the armed robberies have been charged.
