Police looking for armed robbery suspects seen clearly in surveillance video

The incident happened early Saturday morning.

FAIRBURN, Ga. -- Police are investigating an armed robbery at a local gas station.

The robbery happened around 5 a.m. Saturday morning at the BP station on Senoia Road.

Police said two men got out of a dark-colored Dodge Avenger, while one suspect remained at the wheel. The suspects then entered the store, and one of the men pulled a gun on the clerk and demanded money.

The suspects also stole some cigarettes and cigars, and then left on Highway 74 toward I-85. 

Fairburn Det. Charles Israel also said the suspects match the description of another armed robbery that happened about 30 minutes later in College Park, which police have now confirmed.

Israel estimates the suspects to be between the ages 15 and 20. Police have released a series of surveillance photos.

With at least 40 cameras on site, police are confident they’ll make an arrest.

“One was wearing a burgundy hoodie with a yellow scarf and blue jeans, the other was wearing a grey (Chicago) Bulls hoodie, with black and white sweat pants on,” said Israel.

Just as clear as what they were wearing in the video, their faces and their demands to the lone clerk to the lone clerk in the front of the store.

“Watching the video, they didn't look like the most professional,” Israel said, who added one of the men even forgot the lighters on the counter and ran back in to get them.

“They definitely need to stop their behavior before someone gets hurt," said Israel, who urged the suspects to turn themselves in. "They either lose their life or lose their lives in the prison system.” 

Anyone with information regarding the suspects is asked to call Crimestoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
