Open doors could make you an easy target for criminals

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police were searching Wednesday for the person who robbed a man at gunpoint inside a home Tuesday night.

40 year old Montanez McCormick was hanging out with a friend at 1203 Dunwoody Dr. around 10 p.m. when someone noticed that the front door was open and walked up and knocked on the screen door.

When McCormick came to the door, the suspect pulled out a gun.  "It appears that it was targeted because the front door was open," explained Valdosta Police Department Lt. Aaron Kirk. "It was late at night and they saw an easy target."

The suspect got away with McCormick's cell phone and $12 in cash.

Call Valdosta Police if you have any information.
