Movie Theater Robbery Arrest

April 29, 2007

A teen is in jail, accused of robbing the Carmike Cinemas in Albemarle County several times.

Investigators say 18-year-old Christopher Benck walked into the theater with a gun on Sunday and left with cash.

Albemarle County Police eventually caught up with Benck and arrested him.

They say he's responsible for a robbery at the Carmike earlier this month, and also back in March.

Police said that Benck is a former employee of the Carmike.

Police are still investigating several other robberies at the theater.
