Frightening armed robbery caught on camera

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An armed robbery at a Homerun Foods was caught on camera.

The man pointed a pistol at the clerk about 10:15 Thursday night in the store on Gillionville Road.

He emptied out two registers and swiped cigarettes. Police say customers and clerks should follow a robber's demands and take mental notes if they're in a similar situation.

"Height, weight, any scars, tattoos, clothing descriptions, what type of weapons--that's going to be most helpful when police officers arrive on the scene," said Public Information Officer Phyllis Banks with the Albany Police Department.

The owner of the gas station is offering a $1,000 reward in the case.
