Convenience store held up by gunman

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department says that the Flash Foods store at 2701 Gillionville Road was held up by an armed man about 2:30 Sunday night.

The clerk told officials that a black man, wearing black long sleeve shirt with his head covered, pointed a gun at her, and demanded money.

She gave him what was in the cash drawer, and he left the scene in a Gray or Silver Ford Focus, heading west on Gillionville Road.

Dougherty County Police observed a similar vehicle and attempted a stop it.

The occupants bailed out the car and took off running.

The vehicle was secured and recovered by authorities. They are looking for the criminals.

If you have any information on the case, call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS, and you may earn a reward.
