Warrants issued for 'wig-bandit'

Dougherty County Police have issued arrest warrants for 19-year-old Tyrafred Campbell, for the two armed robberies of convenience stores Monday night. 

He has a street name of "Ray Ray." 

Anyone who knows his whereabouts call DCP at 430-6600.

Authorities believe that the black man wearing a grandmother like wig who robbed two stores at gunpoint is 'Ray Ray.'

He hit two stores within seven minutes and got away with $1,500 cash. His first stop was the Pit Stop gas station on Sylvester road at 9:56PM.

Surveillance tapes shows the man entering the store and demanding money. The cashier gives the thief her entire cash draw.

The wig-bandit gets away just over $300 cash. On his way out the store he sees a customer watching the crime in progress.

Police say the robber fired several shots at the customer in the parking lot. The customer escaped with no injuries.

DCP say the same man robbed the Fast Lane gas station on Sylvester road minutes later. He goes in with his wig, gun and demands more money.
