According to the police investigation, two female employees of Dollar General, were getting ready to close the store when they realized that one of the customers had not left the store.

They had noticed the suspicious man enter the store approximately ten minutes earlier. The man was dressed as a woman with a bronze purse, a curly wig and a green scarf covering part of his face.

The employees looked around in the store to locate him.

They found him near the back of the store. When they approached him, he pulled out a handgun from his purse and told them to “stay calm.”

He walked them to the registers and demanded the money in the safe as well as several cartons of cigarettes. The robber added: “Do as I say and get the money.”

The clerks began to fill up shopping bags, but they were not moving fast enough for the armed robber. He demanded they move faster saying, “Sweet girl, if you want to go home, do what I say. Hurry up.”

The suspect was described as a black male and approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build.
