On February 4, officials with Transylvania County Sheriff's Office said they were dispatched to a reported armed robbery at the Triangle Stop Number 205 at 3614 Hendersonville Hwy in Pisgah Forest.

Investigators are now seeking information on a reflective jacket and shoes that were found near the scene along Crab Creek Road. Deputies said those items appeared to have been worn by the suspect.

Deputies said the jacket appears to have had a company logo or name in a black outlined box on the front right chest, as well as a reflective name panel on the back of the jacket. They said both had been cut out of the jacket, which is a size large JORESTECH brand jacket.

The shoes located along with the jacket are size 9.5 Nike Air Max sneakers, blue and gray in color.The bottoms of the shoes are extremely worn, said deputies.

Anyone with information about the sneakers, or this style jacket with a similar logo placement is asked to contact Transylvania County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said investigators are also working to identify a possible witness who pulled up to the store around 8 p.m. that evening, a short time after the armed robbery. They described the vehicle as a dark-colored Honda Odyssey van with multiple people inside. Deputies said the van's occupants may have seen something which could aid in the investigation.

Investigators would like to speak to them about what they may have witnessed.

Anyone with information on this robbery, potential witnesses, jacket or shoes is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (828) 86-CRIME or the Sheriff's Office at (828) 884-3168.
