Third suspect charged in McDonald's robbery

Police on Wednesday announced a third arrest in connection with the robbery of a south High Point fast-food restaurant earlier this month.
Kimberly Gail Abrigo, who worked at McDonald’s at 2738 S. Main St. as a manager, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and felony conspiracy, said High Point police Capt. Mike Kirk.
Two armed men entered the restaurant on April 11 about 2:30 a.m. and stole cash and wallets from the business and the three customers who were inside, authorities said.
Abrigo was there at the time and is accused of conspiring with the two to carry out the robbery.
“We’re fairly certain that she had everything kind of conveniently staged for them to be successful at this,” Kirk said.
He described Abrigo as acquaintances of the other suspects but declined to elaborate on her alleged role in the incident.
“All the details of who all we interviewed and how we pieced it together, that will come out more at trial,” he said.
Investigators said both men, who were armed with handguns and had their faces covered, ran from the restaurant after the robbery into a wooded area across South Main Street.
A large contingent of police officers set up a perimeter around the area and a police K-9 tracked the suspects through the woods to the 2400 block of Brentwood Street, where they were apprehended behind a house.
The suspects were identified as Quatez Lamar Scott, 21, of Taylor Avenue in High Point, and Isaac Andre Spencer, 22, of Harris Road in Charlotte. Both were charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and five counts of second-degree kidnapping.
Spencer was also charged with possession of firearm by a convicted felon. He was on probation at the time of the McDonald’s incident for robbery and assault convictions from 2010 and was returned to state prison this week as a parole violator, records show.
Scott has been jailed under a $100,000 bond since his arrest.
A judge on Wednesday set bond for Abrigo, 27, of Delk Drive in High Point, at $200,000. She is no longer employed with McDonald’s, according to a company spokeswoman.
