Suspect Charged In Robberies In Hickory & Taylorsville

Catawba County Sheriff's Office
Press Release

On Friday morning (August 7th) at 7:39 AM, deputies with the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a robbery at the Propst Superette Convenience store at 3725 Sulphur Springs Rd in Hickory.

When deputies arrived they were informed that a man had entered the store, informed the clerk of his intent to commit a robbery, and made a demand for money.  Video of the robbery was captured on the store’s surveillance system. The bandit obtained a small amount of money before fleeing the store.

Investigators with the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division (CCSO CID) initiated an investigation into this incident and began to gather additional information.

At 10:37 AM a second robbery was reported to Taylorsville Police.  The person committing that robbery at the Pahal Shop and Save at 3752 Highway 16-south in Taylorsville matched the description of the person who committed the robbery at the Sulphur Springs Rd. Propst Superette. Surveillance footage from the Taylorsville robbery captured a dark colored SUV operated by the person committing that robbery.

At 11:11 AM Friday, investigators with the Catawba County Sheriff's Office observed a dark colored SUV matching the description of the SUV used in the Taylorsville robbery traveling along Highway 16 in northern Catawba County. Investigators stopped that vehicle on I-40 near exit 130. Charles David Kincaid,
43, identified as the driver, matched the appearance of the person committing both robberies and was taken into custody. A quantity of money believed to have been taken from both stores was recovered.

Kincaid, a Claremont resident, was charged with Robbery With a Dangerous Weapon in both robberies.

Investigators with Taylorsville Police Department, Alexander County Sheriff’s Office and Catawba County Sheriff’s Office are partnering together in the investigations which are expected to continue as additional information and evidence is gathered.   

Kincaid was jailed in Catawba County under a $50,000 bond.

Sheriff Don Brown praised the work of the Criminal Investigations Division: “Impressive work by our deputies and investigators. This suspect was likely to have continued committing robberies had he not been quickly apprehended.”
