CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Police say the Dollar General store on Seventh Street in Cordele was held up this morning by a man armed with a gun.

Cordele Police say a man about 5' 10" dressed in all black and wearing a red bandanna came in the back of the store while a truck was making a delivery.

He took the clerk up to the register, got the money and ran out the store.

"We are working on the assumption that it is his to cover all bases when you find materials that fit some description you work until proved different," said Sgt. Jeremy Taylor.

Cordele Police, Crisp County Sheriff's deputies, and K9 unit are searching the vicinity for the robber.

No one was hurt.
