VIDEO: Gunman tries to hold up convenience store

Posted: Updated:

He walked into a Food Mart in southwest Atlanta armed with a rifle and demanded money, but only was able to make off with 10 bags of chips. It was a crime that was all caught on camera and now police are asking for help in catching him.

The Atlanta Police Department posted the video from the Nov. 30 robbery on their YouTube channel hoping that someone will recognize the men who robbed the Food Mart located in the 3500 block of Martin Luther King Drive.


The video shows the man dressed in an orange jumpsuit and mask approach the counter with a long rifle. Police say he demanded money from the clerk standing behind Plexiglas at the counter. Instead of cooperating, the clerk simple ducked down behind the counter.

The video then shows several hooded men outside go into the store and grab chips as the gunman bangs on the Plexiglas. No shots were fired and one was hurt during the incident.

Anyone with further information is asked to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS.
