A North Carolina man was arrested in connection with a robbery early Saturday in Ridgeway, according to a news release.

The incident happened at about 3:48 a.m. Saturday at Wilco-Hess at 4801 Greensboro Road, the release said.  

Officers who responded spoke with a clerk who told them that a man entered the store, said he had a weapon and demanded a Green Dot RushCard, the release said. A weapon was never displayed, it added.  

The clerk gave the man the Green Dot RushCard and he allegedly fled the store on foot, the release said.

Zachary Byron Lillard, 27, of 2450 Wentworth St., Reidsville, N.C., was arrested and charged with one felony count of robbery in connection with the incident, the release said. Lillard is being held in the Henry County Jail without bond.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is asked to call Deputy Misty Pace at 638-8751 or Crimestoppers at 63-CRIME (632-7463).

The Crimestoppers Program offers rewards up to $1,000 for information related to crime. The nature of the crime and the substance of the information provided determine the amount of reward paid.
