CONYERS, Ga. -- At 9:30 Sunday night, Conyers Police responded to Hibbett Sports on Dogwood Drive to investigate an armed robbery.
A group of three Hibbett employees walked to the back door after closing the store. When they opened the door, a six-foot tall black man wearing all black pointed a gun at them. "Don't do anything stupid and get me the cash," he said, according to witnesses. Employees started to empty the cash registers.
"I know there's more than that. Don't try handing me $100 or $500, " he said. The employees threw him a money bag, and he ran out the back door. They immediately called 911. The witnesses described the robber as a black man, weighing 200 pounds, with black shoes, a black jacket, and black pants.
The description sounded familiar to one of the responding officers.
