Armed robbers hit Tyrone AT&T store
Tyrone Police responded to an armed robbery Thursday morning at the AT&T store at Carriage Oaks Drive and Ga. Highway 74. The store manager was the only person in the store at the time of the robbery and was left uninjured after the four perpetrators left with phones and cash.
Tyrone Police Sgt. Eric DeLoose said the armed robbery occurred around 10 a.m. as the manager was opening the store. DeLoose said three men described as black males essentially followed the manager into the store. A fourth person, possibly a female, soon joined the three in the store.
DeLoose said one of the men, wearing a hoodie pulled over his face, brandished a shotgun and demanded phones and money. The four subsequently left the store on foot. It is currently unknown if the four had a vehicle positioned nearby.
DeLoose said the store manager was unharmed in the incident. The only description available indicated that the four were dressed in dark clothing and jeans.
Anyone with information pertaining to this crime is asked to contact Tyrone Police at 770-487-4732.
