Bartow County deputies responded to Texaco on Highway 20 in Cartersville Tuesday night in reference to an armed robbery.
A black male suspect entered the store, grabbed a Mello Yello soft drink, went to the service counter, and pointed a black handgun at an employee. After asking for the cash drawer to be opened, the employee did so and the suspect grabbed almost 72 dollars. The suspect left after the employee told him she didn’t have any cash drops. No one was hurt.
The black male appeared to be in his thirties and wore a dark-blue shirt, a black undershirt, black pants, and black knit cap.
According to a witness, the suspect may have entered a burgundy Ford Expedition containing a white male near Days Inn and left.
