LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Surveillance video captures the suspect walking into Homerun Foods at 10:45 p.m., Saturday. He points the gun at the clerk and demands money. She gives him the whole drawer. He fumbles for the cash a bit. Less than two minutes later he bolts out the door.
The cashier's sister rushed to the store as soon as she received the call.
"I don't even think I thought," said Beth Taylor. "I just got up and came over here."
John Banks was inside the store the whole time.
"I was hoping he wouldn't hurt anyone," said Banks. "I was worried about the clerk's safety. I was in the store and I don't think he saw me."
Banks says the suspect ran out the door towards the woods. It concerns clerks who have to open and close in the dark.
"It does," said Taylor. "It's dark when you get here in the morning. We're looking out our doors and around the side of the building before we come in."
Take one more good look at the man. The bright yellow or orange hooded jacket covers his head. He's wearing a black shirt on top of a white shirt, dark shorts and shoes. He holds the gun in his right hand. The black male appears to be in his late teens or early 20s anywhere between 5'8" and 6'0".
Clerks will keep a close eye on everyone who walks trough these doors incase they recognize this man.
Anyone with information that may lead to an arrest can call the Lee County Sheriff's Department at (229) 759-6012.
