Police search for man in robbery, threats

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Police are investigating an attempted robbery and bomb threat at a gas station.

Police said around 5:30 Christmas evening, a 5 foot 8 inch tall white man with a slim build went into the Kangaroo Express on South Mock Road, and demanded money.

He passed the clerk a note saying there was a bomb under the clerk's car and a man was behind the store with a gun.

The clerk told the man he was calling police.

The would-be thief ran off and was last seen wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt. He drove away in an older blue Toyota Corolla.

Authorities said they were reviewing surveillance video.

Anyone with information is urged to call Dougherty County Police.
