The man thought to have robbed an east Macon Family Dollar on July 31 struck again Tuesday, robbing the Publix on Tom Hill Sr. Blvd. just after 2 p.m., according to the Bibb County Sheriffs Office.
Witnesses have said a man approached the clerk at the customer service desk, said he had a gun and demanded money from the register. He didnt display a weapon, according to a news release.
Once he received an undisclosed amount of cash, the man left in a black 2002 Ford Escape with tag number BZF 4627. The window behind the drivers side rear door appeared to be missing and was covered with what looked like black duct tape, according to the release.
No one was injured during the robbery.
Authorities think the suspect is the same man who robbed Family Dollar, 160 Emery Highway. During both robberies he wore the same blue windbreaker type jacket and camouflage baseball cap with a black G on the front, according to the release.
He is described as being a 5-foot 9-inch to 6-foot tall white man who weighs about 200 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriffs office at 746-9441, Macon police at 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
