Two arrests have been made for multiple robberies at a Moultrie, GA gas station.

The Chevron gas station on Veteran's Parkway was robbed Thursday, January 16, 2014, for the second time this week.

Surveillance video shows the masked gunman point and shoot his gun at the clerk.

The gunman got away with $700.

Police caught up with the getaway vehicle and the suspects took off on foot.

Police were able to capture the driver, who is identified as Demetrius Sinclair.

Police say they were able to use evidence from the case to identify gunman, Jeremy Powermoore, who has also been apprehended.

According to police, the area has recently seen crime go up, and they are trying to control it.

"We are trying to have more officers on the street at certain times of the day but as far as patrolling convenience stores, that's normal patrol, but yes we have asked officers to keep riding the area," said David Jones, Moultrie Police Department.

Police are still looking for the suspects in the first robbery that took place earlier this week.

Nobody was injured in either robbery.

The suspects are being charged with aggravated assault and robbery.
