ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Another Albany business is robbed at gunpoint Thursday night. That is the fifth Albany business stuck up in the last three nights.

The Winery Package Store in the 23-hundred block of Gillionville Road was the latest victim. Police say just before 9 PM one man with a gun came in and demanded money. After the clerk gave him cash, the robber ran away. He is described as a black man, about six feet tall, wearing a blue sweater and blue jeans.

Friday morning employees at the Winery were keeping the door locked, opening them only for people they knew.
