Armed robbers steal candy

Turner County- The armed robbery happened at Centrapak in Ashburn where M&M Mars candy is packaged.

Just after midnight two men jumped over the fence, held a gun to the security guard, and forced him to lie face down on the ground.

"Thank goodness nobody was injured we think that while the one subject had him at gunpoint on the floor that at least two other individuals went inside the building and removed the candy," says Investigator Steve Mauldin of the Turner County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies say believe the robbers knew the layout of the building because they also took the surveillance video tape. If you have any information contact the Turner County Sheriff's Office.
