A man has been charged in an armed robbery at Rise Up Coffee and a burglary at The Greek Pita Place, according to police, and charges are pending in burglaries at two more Salisbury businesses. 

A Salisbury Police Department news release shows officers responded Wednesday morning to overnight burglaries at The Greek Pita Place, Family Dollar and Viet Taste. All three businesses are in the 700 and 800 blocks of South Salisbury Boulevard.

In each burglary, a suspect broke glass to gain entry, police said, and then removed items before fleeing the scene.

Investigators identified 24-year-old Ernest Adkins of Salisbury as a potential suspect. A warrant for his arrest in The Greek Pita Place robbery was issued Wednesday, according to police.

At about 3:40 p.m. that same day, officers were called to Rise Up Coffee at 529 Riverside Drive for an armed robbery. Police said two employees, a 27-year-old man and 24-year-old woman, told them the suspect threatened them with a knife and demanded money from the cash register.
