A masked gunman robbed the Family Dollar at 3656 Jeffersonville Road at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
Employees were outside locking the doors when the gunman came from around the corner of the building and ordered them back inside to open the safe, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. The robber ran away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The gunman is described as a white man about 5 feet 6 inches tall who was wearing a dark blue hooded fleece jacket with a thick light-colored strip across the back, stone-washed blue jeans, gloves and a black hooded face mask with eye holes, the release stated. Witnesses saw a man fitting that description hanging around the store earlier in the evening. He had dark brown hair and mustache and a stubble beard.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff's Office at 746-9441 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME.
