Forsyth police are looking for the mustached gunman who robbed the CVS at 430 Tift College Drive at about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

“We were out until about 2 a.m. (Thursday) searching,” said Forsyth Police Chief Keith Corley. “But, we think he’s from out of town.”

Officers originally thought he might live in a nearby neighborhood, but they did not locate the man who used a silver revolver in the crime.

A customer in the store didn’t even know a holdup was in progress due to the calmness of the clerk, Corley said.

“It was an 18-year-old clerk he robbed who had such poise. He did exactly what he needed to do,” Corley said.

The unknowing customer asked the clerk where to find an item, and he replied “Aisle 11,” Corley said.

The gunman repeated the direction to the customer, who learned of the armed robbery after the man got away with the cash.

The robbery was dressed in a dark jacket, light-colored pants and wore a black cap.

Anyone with information is urged to call Forsyth police at 994-6022, or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME.
