Donte Lemont Harris


Winston-Salem police arrested a man Friday in connection with an armed robbery that happened last month at a South Stratford Road business, authorities said.

Donte Lemont Harris, 29, of East 29th Street was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a felon, police said. 

Detectives linked Harris to a July 13 armed robbery at AZA Skill Games at 1422 Stratford Road, police said. At that time, a man entered the business at 1:40 a.m. and ordered the patrons into a back corner.

The man, who had a silver handgun, then provided employees with a black bag and demanded money, police said. Harris is accused of stealing $12,000 from the business, according to his arrest warrant.

No injuries were reported.

Harris was being held Friday in the Forsyth County Jail with his bond set at $100,000, the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office said. He is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 22.
