ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department says that two people were detained by officers, but not arrested, in connection to an attempt to rob the Flash Foods store located at the intersection of North Slappey Blvd., and Palmyra Road.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video from an Albany Flash Foods convenience store following an attempted robbery overnight.
