D'Angelo BarkerStatesville Police have arrested D’Angelo Malindsay Barker, 22, of Statesville, for the armed robbery of the D&D Express/Market Basket at 1504 Salisbury Rd on May 6, 2022. Following a two-month search for Barker, he was found hiding in a closet in an apartment at Signal Hill Apartments earlier today. He is being held in the Iredell County Jail on a $100,000 secured bond.

DETAILS: On May 6, 2022, at approximately 8:30 pm, Investigator D.J. Beck and Cpl. D.E. Schenz from the Statesville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division responded to the Market Basket store to investigate the reported robbery. Witnesses stated a subject came into the store completely covered from head to toe and acting strange. The suspect stayed in the store for a while playing games. The suspect then approached the counter when he heard the store clerk open the cash register, pulled out pistol from his waistband, pointed it at the clerk, and told her to give him the money. The store clerk ran across the street to call 911. Based on the witness statements, video surveillance and physical evidence collected, Barker was identified as the suspect and a warrant for Robbery with Firearms or Dangerous Weapons was obtained on May 26, 2022.

After nearly two months of attempting to locate Barker, Inv. Beck received information from N.C. Probation that Barker was located at the Signal Hill Apartments. On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, members of the Statesville Police Department Investigations Division and additional officers responded to the apartment complex in an attempt to locate Barker. Barker was found hiding in a closet at this location and was taken into custody without incident. Barker was processed, taken before a magistrate, and placed in the Iredell County Jail on a $100,000 secured bond.
