CAMILLA, GA (WALB) – Camilla Police need your help to get two dangerous men off the street.
The robbers shot two people during a holdup earlier this month at the Exxon on Highway 19 in Camilla. The case is cold now, and investigators worry the robbers will strike again.
A five thousand dollar reward in this case has done little to help police with leads. They want you to take a close look at the surveillance video one more time and call police if you notice anything that can help them make an arrest.
Surveillance video caught the dangerous exchange, two guns, a rifle and a handgun, pointed at Natasha Thomas and Avrieshia Brown at the Exxon Station Route 66 convenience store. We've stopped the surveillance video so you can get a better look at the gunmen. Leads in the case have grown cold.
"At this time we're not getting anything, nothing's coming back to us from the streets," said Camilla Police Investigator Lt. Vernon Nobles.
Next door at the Route 66 Diner, customers worry that's because the gunmen aren't from Camilla.
"Usually if it happens in a small town, usually within a week or two everybody knows everybody elses business," said citizen Nelson Burnett.
Brown and customer Terry Brown who was brought back in the store were both shot during this robbery despite complying with the suspects orders. Police are confident someone in southwest Georgia knows something. They want you to look closely at the suspects faces covered in T-shirts and at their mannerisms.
The sign in front of the gas station reminds everyone of the $5,000 reward, but citizens say if you know something, you should just come forward.
"That's part of being a responsible person, is to help everybody, you're supposed to help one another, not harm one another," said Burnett.
They hope police catch these two suspect before they harm anyone else.>
The GBI has continued to investigate this case along with three other armed robberies in Moultrie, Norman Park, and Coolidge to see if they are connected. They continue to compare the surveillance video.
Both victims were released from the hospital and are still recovering. Police say you can call CrimeStoppers, Camilla Police, The GBI, or police in your town to report anything you know about the crime.
