Woman held at gunpoint at video store

July 2, 2003

Blakely- The Movie Gallery was robbed Wednesday night. Two men walked into the store just before 11, and held a gun on the female store clerk.

They demanded money from the cash register and the safe. "They tied her up with a shoelace or something similar to that, then they fled the scene. We tracked them for about a hundred yards then we lost their track," said Investigator Randell Meeks.

Early County deputies were able to follow a track of dropped money and footprints for a short distance. The Movie Gallery was robbed a couple years ago, and the thief was not caught.

Investigators do not think Wednesday's robbery is related.
