Tifton- This First American Cash Advance was robbed by three man around noon. Investigators say the tallest man, a black male with braids, had a small handgun.

The men tied up the two clerks in the store with duct tape, took an undetermined amount of money and fled the scene in a blue or grey Buick or Chevy vehicle. Three men fitting the same description robbed the Modern Loan Company in Cordele just after 9:00 Thursday morning. No one was hurt in either robbery.

Investigators believe the men are responsible for an armed robbery in Moultrie late Wednesday afternoon and probably about ten others from Warner Robins to Florida. All of the robberies appear to take place within several miles of interstates.

All three men are described as young black males. If you have any information about the robberies contact local law enforcers.
