Deliveryman robbed at Long John Silvers

Sheriff’s deputies remain on the lookout for a black man in his 20s who measures 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds.


The suspect, who has an Afro-style haircut, was last seen headed east on Gordon Highway wearing a black Braves baseball cap, no shirt and black shorts.

About 3:50 a.m., a McLane Food Services deliveryman who was dropping off an order at the restaurant said the robber pointed a silver or chrome semi-automatic pistol at him and ordered him to surrender all of his money and cell phone.

When the victim said the property was in his truck, the suspect told him to get it, keeping the gun pointed at him throughout the retrieval.

After the robbery, the thief fled across Deans Bridge Road and then east on Gordon Highway.
