SMITHVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - Police are currently looking for two suspects who may be “armed and dangerous” after robbing and carjacking a victim at gunpoint, according to the Smithville Police Department (SPD).

The incident happened on Tuesday around 7:20 p.m. at the Dollar General on Church Street. The victim told police she was robbed at gunpoint by two men and his 2008 Honda Civic was also stolen.

Both suspects were around 5′07″-5′10″ in height. One of the males was last seen wearing a blue/black jacket, and the second male was last seen wearing a black jacket. Both males were also last known to be wearing black ski masks, according to SPD.

Again, the suspects are considered armed and dangerous and you should only contact law enforcement if you see them.

The black Civic has been found.

“It was found earlier today on Cannon avenue in Albany, Georgia. It was off in the woods maybe an eighth of a mile deep in the woods,” said Sgt. Michael Francis with Smithville Police Department.

Francis said the two men they’re looking for are based in Albany and they know this because the car was found in a neighborhood on the southside. SOT “Where the car actually was, it would be hard for somebody to know where that was at, unless they were from there, or from that general area,” he said.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Smithville Police Department at (229) 759-6012. Ask to speak to Sgt. Francis (Smithville Police Department 103).
