ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Subway on North Slappey Boulevard was robbed by two masked men with guns just after 11 o'clock Monday night.
Albany Police now say they believe the group is responsible for at least nine armed robberies since October.
surveillance video from the armed robbery at the Subway on North Slappey shows two men in masks with guns. One leaps the counter. Albany Police say they believe this and at least eight other armed robberies since October 28th across East and West Albany are the work of one organized gang.
"It could be anywhere from three to four people involved, but we do believe all of them are connected and all of them are related," APD Lt. Eddie Jones said.
Surveillance video from the robbery of South Slappey Burger King late Saturday night shows a masked man, obviously dressed in the same tan coverall, burst into the restaurant yelling for everyone to get down. He snatched the money drawer from the cash register, and then ran out.
"We believe it is the work of 3 or 4 individuals, because the height and weight changes," Jones said.
The rash of robberies started on West Oakridge October 28th with a Flash Foods, the Three Squares Diner, three Subways, and the South Slappey Burger King all robbed in very similar fashion.
"They know what they are doing," APD Detective Charlie Roberts said. "They are taking the opportunity and taking their time to pick their particular target. And they are good at what they do."
No one has been hurt yet in these crimes, but police say the danger is real, and arresting this robbery gang is the department's top priority
"That's always in the back of our minds. Concern of ours. To make sure nobody gets hurt in these robberies," Jones said.
Police say the reward money is there waiting for anyone with information leading to the arrest of this robbery gang. they are asking the community for that information to stop these masked gunmen.
Police say the robbers often strike when workers are busy cleaning up.
They advise fast food restaurants to keep their doors locked until opening time and to lock their doors near closing time.
