Moultrie police search for shootout, robbery suspects

June 23, 2006

Moultrie --   Two black men tried to rob a pair of Hispanic men at the Super C Store on West Boulevard, but the store owner pointed a pistol at the would-be robbers.

Police said the store owner fired one shot at the bandits, who fired back numerous times. No one was injured, but police said the store front was heavily damaged.

The suspects are described 6 feet 1 inch tall. One man is slender, while the other is heavy set.

In a second incident, a black man robbed the Chevron Station on Highway 133 about 5:00 this morning. He had a pistol and was wearing a mask.

Police said he demanded money, walked behind the counter, took the cash, and left the store. He is described as 5-9 to 6 feet tall, slender build and weighs about 170 pounds.

He was driving a late 80's model blue or gray Chrysler New Yorker or Park Avenue.
