Albany  -- A ten thousand dollar reward is out now on the man who shot up an East Albany convenience store Monday night.  

Twice since July, a man has opened fire at the store during a robbery. The first time, a security guard was shot in the leg. And while no one was hit by the flying bullets this time, store owners are afraid it's just a matter of time before someone is killed.      

Jack Rabbit Foods already has the ten thousand dollar check made up, ready to give to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the armed robber who stuck up their Cordele Road store Monday night.  

Jack Rabbit Vice President Hal Jackson said, "The reason why we are offering this reward, is we do fear for the safety of our employees. The person who robbed the truck stop was very violent."

The masked man rode up to the store on a white bicycle, shot out the store's door, then ran behind the counter and pointed to where the money is kept. Clerks say he never spoke, but got angry when he did not get enough money, and fired a second shot into the floor, then sped off of his bicycle.

This attack comes just two months after another violent robbery at this story. July 24th a man shot the store security guard in the leg and then robbed the store. Store workers think it's the same man.    

"A ten thousand dollar reward for any information leading to the conviction of the person who has robbed our truck stop," Jackson said.

Store officials want to make sure the masked armed robber does not come back again, and think the big reward will get Police the information they need.  

If you have any information on these robberies, call Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
