Richmond County sheriff's investigators are searching for this man, who robbed two stores Monday night.

At 10:39 p.m., a man entered the Super Express, 1502 Central Ave., posing as a customer, Lt. Calvin Chew said in an e-mail Tuesday afternoon.

The man pulled out the shotgun and demanded money from the clerk, but another employee threw something at the gunman and scared him. He ran from the store before getting any money, Chew said.

The same man then went to Tip Top Gas, 2447 Wrightsboro Road, at 10:48 p.m. and pointed the same shotgun at the clerk while demanding money from the register. This time, he got an undisclosed amount of cash. The gunman made the clerk follow him outside and told her to stay there while he ran away on foot, Chew said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

Armed robbery, should be life

Armed robbery, should be life in prison at least. Those clerks were just a finger slip away from the death penalty. Thank God noone was hurt.

In a Kroger in Indianapolis the other day a would be robber was shot to death by a store manager! We need more LEGALLY armed shopkeepers here as well. One 9mm will put an end to a lengthy criminal career.

Looks like genius here forgot

Looks like genius here forgot the hoodie. I guess he didn't read the Mini-Market Armed Robbery Instruction Manual. Smile for the camera zero.

I didn't know those gas

I didn't know those gas stations stayed open that late. Its very unnerving that I work right around the corner from the Super Express during the night.

I would be willing to bet

I would be willing to bet they are repeat violent offenders that our revolving door justice system has allowed to continue terrorizing our communtiy.

Once caught, go to jail, no bail, convict and then prison for the rest of their life.
