OCHLOCKNEE, GA (WALB) - Investigators are analyzing surveillance footage of a burglary at Rick's Country Store in Ochlocknee. The video shows a burglar going behind the counter and taking money from the cash register around 2:30 Tuesday morning. "It appears that only cash was taken. We're not sure at this point how much cash. The store owners are still trying to determine how much was taken," said Thomas County Sheriff's Officer PIO Captain Steve Jones.
Police say the burglar wore a black jacket, black gym shorts, and garden gloves. He also wore a mask covering his face. "The suspect that went in wasted no time, was in and out. I don't know if an audible alarm was sounded, but definitely the silent one went to our dispatch," said Jones.
Police also have images of a second suspect acting as a lookout. He's a black man who was wearing a purple hat, green T-shirt, purple shorts, and white gloves. The burglar got into the store by breaking a front window. "They threw an object through one of the windows and broke the window initially than used another larger object, looked like a trash can, to finish breaking the window out large enough so he can enter the store," said Jones.
Police say they've already gotten a few helpful tips. "We've had a couple calls this morning come in with people saying it looks like someone they know. We've asked a couple of these people to come down and view the video and let's see if in pans out."
The Thomas County Sheriff's Office will continue investigating the case. Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Thomas County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 225-3315.
