THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Police in Thomasville are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store early yesterday.

They say the man tried to rob a convenience store across the street just moments earlier.

The suspect demanded money from the Flash Foods on West Jackson street but left empty handed after the cashier refused to open the register.

But his efforts didn't end there.

The man then walked across the street to a BP store. Surveillance video shows a man in a green hoodie hanging around the store until it was empty. He then approached the register and paid for a pack of gum. When the cashier opened the register, the suspect told her he had a gun and proceeded to take money out the register and then left.

"He did not show a weapon," explained Thomasville Police Detective Scott Newberry. "He did actually kept wanting to say, saying he had a weapon and said this is a robbery in both stores."

Police are following up on a few leads. If you have any information on this robbery, call Crime Stoppers at (229) 227-3305. There is now a $5,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in this case.
