Auto Zone Robbed
By Joe Joe Wright
No sooner than a $7000.00 reward was posted for the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the rash of armed robbery’s that Cordele has suffered through, than bang here we go again. At approximately 7:45am an unknown suspect came up on the store employees as they were opening up and robbed them at gun point. The suspect describe as a black male standing about 5’9 slender build was wearing a hoodie and mask. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and headed back east as he exited the building according Detective Lt. Carrie Lull. Units from the Cordele Police Department and Crisp County Sheriff’s Office responded.
The Cordele Dispatch will begin publishing as many photos as are available of the suspects of all robberies in the hope that someone out there may recognize the suspects and come forward with information. In times like these it takes an entire community becoming involved and stepping forward and saying something even if they are not sure it is pertinent to the case. “See something, say something.”
