BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –A store clerk's quick thinking likely prevented an armed robbery in Bainbridge.

When 25-year old Shane Miller arouses the suspicious of a clerk at the Kangaroo store on Shotwell Street, the clerk sent her husband a text message that she thought she was about to be robbed.

He called police who went to the store and arrested Miller for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a concealed weapon.
