THOMASVILLE,  GA (WALB) –  Police say two young men walked in the Video Warehouse on Jackson Street around 7:30 with guns demanding money. One of the two employees opened the cash register.

One of the suspects reached in the drawer, took out the cash, and ran out the door.

 "With it being the holidays we do expect different types of crimes to pick up not only robberies but burglaries and different thefts of sorts," Lt. Eric Hampton of the Thomasville Police Department.

The employees cooperated with the robbers and no one was hurt. Police are looking over surveillance video, and would not release it to us.
