Detectives with the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office are searching for a suspect who robbed a woman at a Castle Hayne ATM.
The suspect held a woman at gunpoint as she tried to take money out of the ATM located at 2601 Castle Hayne Road, just before 8 p.m. Thursday, according to sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Jerry Brewer.
