OCILLA, GA (WALB) -

Four masked men are caught on camera holding up a Flash Foods overnight in Ocilla. Police now have three people in custody and are looking for a fourth, who is on the run.

Two masked robbers, wielding guns and caught on camera, are seen storming this Ocilla Flash Foods on Irwin Avenue around midnight.

Then two more, just 15 seconds after, follow from the other side of the convenience store. Police say while one of them held up the clerk, three others grab cash and hundreds of dollars of merchandise from the store.

"$150 in cash was taken, and around $700 in merchandise is taken, cigarettes and things of that nature," said Ocilla Police Sgt. Doug Douglas.

Soon after police were called to the scene, an Irwin County deputy made a traffic stop, pulling over a 2009 burgundy Dodge Charger, that they say is seen in this video pulling behind the convenience store just before the robbery. That's when the three of the four suspected robbers were taken into custody.

"'A traffic stop was made by Steven Rogers with Irwin County Sheriff's Department, along with Ben Hill County and Fitzgerald Police Department Units. They were apprehended there and taken into custody," said  Douglas.

But police say they're still looking for a fourth suspected robber in a second vehicle.Take a good look at this Honda, also seen parking behind the Flash Foods just before the robbery. They believe the remaining missing suspect was driving it and carrying the stolen cash and merchandise.

If you have any information that could help police track down the fourth suspected robber or the vehicle, you're asked to call Ocilla police at (229) 468-7494.
