- Kannapolis Police
Johnathan Bo Bullington, 23, of Kannapolis, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, police say.

A 23-year-old Kannapolis man has been charged with the armed robbery of a convenience store Friday night, according to Kannapolis police.

Johnathan Bo Bullington was taken into custody a short time after the 9:30 p.m. robbery at Lane Street Express Food Mart, in the 2000 block of Lane Street.

A clerk told police a man entered the store with a knife, took money from the cash register, and fled. That touched off a manhunt that ended when an officer patrolling on Lane Street spotted a man who fit the description of the suspect.

Bullington is jailed under $200,000 bond, Kannapolis police say.
