    String of 12 robberies lands Fayetteville family in jail

    Fayetteville, N.C. Three members of a Fayetteville family have been charged in connection with 12 convenience store robberies on Yadkin, Raeford and Reilly roads over the past five months, police said Monday.

    A Fayetteville police officer was in the parking lot early Sunday of Scotchman convenience store, at 6508 Yadkin Road, when he saw Erin Whitmeyer, 44, leave that store and get into a vehicle. As he followed the vehicle in his patrol car, a report that the store had been robbed by a woman matching Whitmeyer's description came over the radio, police said.

    He stopped the vehicle, found an undisclosed amount of cash believed to be stolen from the store and took Whitmeyer into custody, police said.

    Investigators later determined that Whitmeyer allegedly used a knife to rob the same store shortly after midnight on April 18.

    Just a few hours earlier, on April 17, her son, Scott Whitmeyer Jr., 20, was arrested for attempting to rob a Sunoco gas station a few blocks away, at 6295 Yadkin Road. Police said Scott Whitmeyer Jr. took out a knife and demanded money from the clerk, at which point a customer overpowered and detained him until police arrived.

    I work very, very hard (just ask my wife :-) at being, and being confused for being a Redneck. But I hate Redneck fools that give us Rednecks a bad name.

    OMG! I swear I saw this story on a old Andy Griffith show just last week. Barney was working in Raleigh. Andy went to visit him and the city was having a string of robberies. Every time the LEO set up a sting...they hit across town. Barney was living with a "nice" family as a roomer. They were always asking about the case. Barney of course told them. Andy figured it out and set them up to be caught...by Barney.
    Was Barney on that department too?

    I guess they got the stores confused with ATMs. Every time they needed some cash they just hit another store.

    That episode of Andy Griffith was the first thing that I thought of when reading the OP. Is this what you would call a 'copy cat' crime?
