Police look for convenience store robber

Moultrie Police hope you can help them track down a man caught on camera robbing a convenience store.  

Investigators hope someone can identify a man seen walking into the Murphy's Express store on Veterans Parkway before 4 o'clock Monday morning. He wore a black jacket with a black drape over a hat white, and he had what appears to be a white bandage on his face. Investigators say the man went into the bathroom for ten minutes then walked up to the counter with two bottles of water. He never showed a gun, but he demanded the store clerk give him all of the money from the register.  

"He instructs to her that she's going to give him all of the money out of the register. She then asks him are you serious? He says yes, and implies to her that he's got a gun and begins to feel in his waist band for it," said Investigator William Baillargeon with the Moultrie Police Department.

 The man got away with more than $200. He then told the clerk to leave the store with him and pretend to be his "friend."  When they got next door to the Oxley's IGA store, he walked away. Investigators found his clothing later that day in a ditch off Kingwood Garden Drive.   

Police say the robber was a slender black man around 5' 4". If you think you recognize him, call Moultrie Police.
