SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A fourth person has been identified during a robbery at a Salisbury sporting goods store. A suspect has been arrested but deputies say they are still searching for the three others connected to the case.

According to authorities, three women went into Dick’s Sporting Goods in Salisbury around 2 p.m. on March 17, gathered various clothing items and walked toward the exit without paying for the clothes. When an employee confronted the women, one of the thieves allegedly pepper sprayed the employee in the face.

The women ran and drove off in a gray four-door Honda Accord that had the tag removed, and in a second burgundy-colored four-door car.

On April 16, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said that with the public’s help they had identified the three women as 19-year-old Armani Cloud, 24-year-old Zjane Johnson and 23-year-old Deneish Brown.

Deputies identified Makayla Nyasia Jackson, 18, as a suspect in the case and obtained felony arrest warrants for robbery with a dangerous weapon.
