Investigators said a black male entered Polo Food Store, 4002 Deans Bridge Road, at 10:10 p.m. on June 10 and held a female clerk against her will at gunpoint. The gunman fled the scene in a light colored, newer model truck with an undetermined amount of cash.

Investigators are also seeking a witness who could possibly provide assistance in identifying the gunman. The witness was driving a black, ‘80s model Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080.
