Mount Holly man charged with Concord credit union robbery

Police have arrested a Mount Holly man in connection with the April 29 robbery of a North Carolina State Employees Credit Union branch in Concord.

Robert Lunsford, 46, has been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon after authorities arrested him at the Knights Inn at 1400 E. Franklin Blvd. in Gastonia Thursday morning.

According to authorities, they were searching for the white male who robbed the credit union branch at 538 Lake Concord Road NE with a handgun while wearing a black ski mask, dark jacket, blue jeans and blue Nike ball cap.

Concord police worked with FBI agents and officers from Gastonia and Gaston County to find and arrest Lunsford. He is being held on $500,000 bond at Cabarrus County Jail. Police said Lunsford is currently on federal probation for a previous bank robbery charge.
