Moultrie armed robberies still unsolved

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

There are several connections between the two robberies that happened Wednesday. The first at a Chevron gas station, and the second armed robbery at a convenience store that lead to a school lock down, but it's the first armed robbery that have police thinking maybe it's the same guys.

Moultrie Police say these two men that came into the Chevron on Veterans Parkway look a lot like the crooks in another robbery they are trying to solve.

"Two black men enter the store wearing dark clothing, with hood over their heads one of them had a sawed off shotgun," said Inv. David Jones.

The two men came into the Chevron with a gun just past 3:30 Wednesday morning. Less than six hours later, a Super C store was robbed. Moultrie Police say there are several similarities.

"The way they came in the store, the manner, going behind the counter appears to be by the same individuals by their clothing description. One of the individuals shoes appear to match in both videos," said Inv. David Jones.

The Chevron owner wasn't in the store when it was robbed, but he says this was a scary situation.

"I hope they get caught before they do something really stupid and they regret the rest of their life. And you kill a person or hurt someone just for a few dollars," said Guru Sekhon, store owner.

He says when the robbers couldn't pry open the safe, they saw a change box behind the register and got only four dollars.

The robbers didn't get away with much money this time, instead they decided to snatch a few of these cigarillos.

Police say there were customers coming in and out the store at the time of the robbery.

"We had a customer that walked in probably like 30 seconds after they walked in. They actually meet each other at the door. Now what if he had walked in two minutes earlier and had seen this. They would have panicked and tried to shoot him," said Guru Sekhon.

Moultrie police are also looking for a gold or beige sedan seen at the second robbery. They say it may be the getaway car.

The clerk involved in the robbery was not hurt. The store owner says he's considering closing the store early or go to a late night window service.

If you know where the men could possibly be hiding, you're urged to call Moultrie Police right away.
