Durham Police Arrest Two on Robbery Charges

Durham police arrested two people late Sunday and charged them with an armed robbery at Triangle D Food Mart at 403 West Trinity Avenue.

Two men armed with guns and wearing black bandanas over their faces robbed the business around 9 p.m. on Sunday. One suspect fired a shot into the floor of the store during the robbery. No one was injured.

The suspects fled in a gray car with New York tags. Officer J.H. Wagstaff spotted a vehicle matching the description about 45 minutes later on North Duke Street and stopped it in the parking lot of Hardee’s at 3912 North Duke Street.

The front passenger in the car jumped out and ran but the remaining occupants stayed in the car. The one who ran was not caught. The car they were in had been reported stolen from Monmouth Avenue on November 18. Officers found a gun inside the vehicle.

Investigators charged the driver, Joyce Beavers, 35, of Durham, and one passenger, Kevin Deshawn Powell, 26, of Durham both with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Ms. Beavers was also charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle. Powell was also charged with failure to appear in court on an earlier charge of hit-and-run. Beavers was placed in Durham County Jail under a $300,000 bond and Powell was placed in jail under a $284,000 bond.
