Man at large after liquor store robbery

WINDER -- Winder Police seek the public's help in finding a man who allegedly robbed a liquor store clerk at gunpoint, making off with $400 in cash.

According to Officer Chris Cooper, officers arrived at 1:47 p.m. Saturday at a package store on McNeal Road, where an armed robbery had just occurred.

Cooper said a black male described as having a large build, wearing all dark clothing, sunglasses and a stocking hat "brandished a handgun and demanded money from the store employee."

The male was also described as having "a well-groomed goatee style beard."

Cooper said the alleged robber left the store on foot and was able to get away with $350-$400 in cash. The suspect fled, walking toward a nearby shopping center parking lot across the street, where he was last seen.

Those with information regarding the identify of the man or other tips regarding the incident are asked to contact Detective Wayne Samples of the Winder Police Department at 770 867-2156.
