MPD: Friday morning armed robbery

MILLEDGEVILLE — A convenience store was robbed early Friday morning, and the Milledgeville Police Department needs help locating the suspect.

Officers responded to the Seven Four Seven convenience store on W. Andrews Street, in reference to an armed robbery.

The call was dispatched at 5:27 a.m., according to MPD.

The clerk stated that a lone gunman entered the store and pointed a handgun at her while ordering her down to the ground. The clerk said the suspect was able to take an unknown amount of cash, before running from the business.

While the robbery was in progress, a couple of patrons were inside the video gambling room of the business unaware of the incident. Video surveillance captured the armed robbery and showed a lone gunman. The suspect was able to vanish before officers could arrive on scene. The only description given was that the suspect was a slender built black male, wearing dark clothes and a mask.

Maj. Reggie Hill of MPD said the suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous.

Anyone with any information that would lead to the apprehension of the suspect is asked to call Detective Everett January at 478)-414-4065 or MPD’s Tip Line at 478-414-4413, to remain anonymous.
