VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office is investigating three recent armed robberies in which Dollar General stores were held up.

Sheriff Ashley Paulk and his detectives believe that the same woman may have committed all the crimes.

In each case, a black woman, approximately 5' 4" to 5' 6" tall, and heavy set, demanded and got money while armed with a handgun. 

She has worn black clothing and covered her face each time, and witnesses report that she has an area of 'flaking skin' and a 'knot' above her right eye. 

These Dollar General stores have been robbed:

  • Highway 41 South at Copeland Road – May 2018
  • Highway 84 East in Naylor – April 2018
  • Madison Highway at Hart Road – September 2017

Paulk asks anyone with any information about this case contact the Sheriff’s Office, Criminal Investigation Division at 229-671-2950.  After hours, contact the Lowndes County Communications Center at 229-245-5270.
