Three African American men entered a Thomson store on Thursday night and one of the men is reported to have pointed a gun at the cashier and demanded money.
The Triangle convenience store at 628 Augusta Highway was robbed at 8:52 p.m. Officers from the McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office, Thomson Police Department and agents from Georgia Bureau of Investigation responded to the scene.
“The three ran from the store and disappeared into the night,” said McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Ronnie Williamson. He said that it is believed that the men left in a vehicle parked in the area around Neal’s Bar-B-Que.
“Video has been viewed and law enforcement is working to identify the subjects. We have asked the assistance of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in the investigation of this crime,” Williamson said.
According to GBI Special Agent In Charge Pat Morgan, the robbers took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene. No one was injured in the crime and several witnesses have been interviewed, he said.
