ALBANY, GA (WALB) -      Two fair workers were robbed at gunpoint in the middle of a South Albany street.

The two Tampa, Florida men were lost and driving on Burke Avenue about 2:30 AM Thursday trying to find the Exchange Club fairgrounds.

24-year old John Perzia and 29-year old Thomas Joseph said someone stepped into the road and made them stop their Ford F-350 truck.

Another car pulled up behind them. They say three men with a gun took the truck and Perzia's wallet.

They flagged down Police on South Slappey. Police found the stolen truck Thursday afternoon on Cedar Avenue.

No arrests have been made.
