Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - In the last month four Decatur county stores have been robbed and none of the robbers has been caught.
The most recent terrifying robbery was Thursday night at Roy's Package store in Bainbridge where crooks stole more than $3,700 was stolen.
Some convenience store clerks tell us they're scared to go to work.
Two employees at Roy's package store in Bainbridge were caught by surprise Thursday night when two gunman, one wearing a halloween mask, came rushing in their store and forced them to the cash registers.
They were too terrified to go on camera, but said they thought the robbers were going to kill them, when after handing over the money, they were forced outside.
But it's possible more people were involved. A man in a white SUV pulled up to the drive-through just as the robbers went inside. Two minutes later, the robbery ended, and he drove off too.
Bernice Graham works down the street at Woodalls convenience store. When she heard the news this morning she said, "It scared the mess out of me. "
But it's not just Thursday night's armed robbery that scares her. In the past month, Decatur county stores have been hit with three more, one at the Quick Buys in Climax on September 7th, another at the Junior Mall on September 12th, and the Kangaroo West on Highway 27 was hit on October 3rd.
"I don't even want to work the night shift anymore," said Graham. Afraid of who's next. "Even though no one's been hurt, this might be the one time, any of us here could be the one."
A bone-chilling thought for Graham.
"Catch them right now! So I don't have to be worried. But you know if they catch them it's going to be somebody else always going to be somebody," she said.
But it's these "somebodys" police are after now. So take a look at the videos, and if you know anything, call police, before it's too late.
The Decatur County Sheriff's Office, Bainbridge Public Safety, and the GBI are working together to solve the armed robberies.
The Kangaroo West was robbed earlier this week and back on July 16th. The Quick Buys on Faceville Highway in Bainbridge was also robbed in July.
