City of Camilla Release
On Sunday August 7, 2011 at approximately 11:00 pm the Winn Dixie store located at 129 US Hwy 19 in Camilla, Georgia was robbed. Three unknown white male subjects entered the store prior to the store closing and hid somewhere in the store. Once the store was closed only two employees remained.
The two remaining employees were in the cash office, located at the front of the store, when the three suspects came running from the dairy isle.
Two of the suspects jumped over the customer service counter and the cash office wall to where the employees were. The suspects ordered the employees to lie down on the floor and then bound them together (hands and feet) with security strips (aka: zip ties) One of the suspects was holding a pistol, described as a black 9mm.
The suspects then removed all the cash from the safe and fled the store. After a few minutes the employees were able to get their feet loose and ran from the store to call the Police.
The two suspects that jumped the counter were described as: (1) the suspect holding the pistol was described as a white male, wearing camouflage clothing and mask, Blonde hair, “deep” blue eyes. (2) White male, wearing camouflage clothing and mask.
During the investigation it was found that two other employees, just prior to the robbery, observed “suspicious” activity, each on separate occasions, from two separate white males.
A sketch artist was brought in to complete a “sketch” of these two subjects. Attached are those sketches.
The investigation also provided information linking these two separate individuals together. We are confident the sketches depict two of the suspects involved in the robbery.
Copies of sketches are attached.
The sketches were originally shown by WALB in Albany, Georgia. I am not sure if this story was provided to WCTV at the time of the robbery. However, if you if the sketches can be shown to your audience, it would be greatly appreciated.
