“They are nice folks that work there. They real nice and that’s strange and scary. I’ve been staying over here for 17 years and this kind of stuff doesn’t happen over here in this neighborhood. Break ins and burglary, it doesn’t happen over here,” said Calvin Collins, a customer of the store.

Collins said he visits this store many times throughout the day and is hoping the clerk who was held at gunpoint, will be OK.

Police are asking for your help.

If you know the man in those photos you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 229-436- TIPS. You could earn a reward.
