CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Cordele police are asking for your help as they investigate yet another armed robbery.

Investigators are on the lookout for two men suspected of robbing an O'Reilly Auto Parts at gunpoint.

This is the third armed robbery in the city since Saturday.

The Mitchell's Bait and Tackle and Subway on 16th avenue were also robbed this weekend. 

Early Saturday morning around 8, investigators said an armed masked suspect walked into Mitchell's Bait and Tackle.

Investigators said he jumped up on the counter and pointed the gun over bullet proof glass, before firing a shot into the air.

No one was injured, but the thief did get away with cash.

And later that day, investigators said a man held up a Subway around 5 p.m.

The store manager said the man demanded money and claimed to be armed, although he never shows a gun. 

He then told her to lock herself in the bathroom as he searched for more money.

Police believe another man was waiting outside in a blue truck.

If you recognize any of the men in the pictures, call Cordele Police immediately.
