Armed robbery reported at X Mart

Richmond County deputies are searching for the man who robbed an area business Monday afternoon.


Shortly before 3 p.m., deputies were called to the X Mart at 1367 Gordon Highway in reference to an armed robbery, according to an incident report.

Once there, a cashier said a man had entered the store flashing a handgun. He pointed the gun at her and demanded money.

The cashier said she told him she did not want anyone to get hurt and handed him about $600 from the drawer and he fled.

She described him as black, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, 140-145 pounds. He was wearing a black tank top and dark color shorts with a white T-shirt covering his face. He was last seen headed on foot toward Gordon Highway.

No one was hurt, deputies said.
