Lenoir Native Sentenced for String of Armed Robberies

Douglas Durant Lipford, a 38 year-old Lenoir native, was sentenced to serve between 178 and 250 months in prison for two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The charges stem from the robberies of several Lenoir businesses in 2010 including Westgate Cinemas, 2 Subways restaurants, Domino's Pizza, Crossroads Restaurant, and TCBY.

Lipford was aided by two accomplices during the robberies.
