Meanwhile, In Wilmington, NC...

...the Spider-Man bandit has held up his last convenience store.

The Wilmington Police Department believes the notorious "Spider-Man" robber who held up convenience stores of cash and cartons of Newport cigarettes with a handgun was killed in October.

Authorities said today that Anthony Lafrance Devone, 41, who was shot and killed Oct. 20, was the masked robber.

Devone, of Wilmington, was found shot to death at Dawson and 14th streets in the Hillcrest public housing neighborhood.

Two days later, police charged Willis Pridgen with first-degree murder in connection with the slaying. Detectives do not believe the Spider-Man robberies contributed to Devone's killing.

A homicide detective I used to know referred to these as a "two fer". One bad guy dead, the other off to prison.
