Valdosta man robbed at gun point

December 3, 2004

Valdosta - A  little after nine last night, Jeff Jones pulled into the garage of his Timberline Drive home and was approached by two African American males.

They brandished a hand gun and told him to close the garage door.

Instead of closing the garage door, Mr. Jones gave the robbers his wallet, which contained cash and a few credit cards.

After taking the wallet the robbers left.

The police are still looking for the suspects.

"One African American male was described as tall, slim, wearing a dark color shirt. The shirt had red stripes on the sleeves. The second male was short, fat. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt," said Lt. Bernard Robinson of the Valdosta Police Department.

Crime tends to rise during the holiday season.

Be aware of your surroundings and call the police if you see anything suspicious.
