According to the police report, the man entered the store around 9:40 p.m. and ordered a sandwich from a 35-year-old employee. The worker began making the sandwich, but the suspect then pushed a white bag across the counter and then lifted his shirt, showing a black gun in his waistband.

The suspect told the worker to “remain calm” and put the cash in the bag. The worker loaded the bag with cash from the register and also hit the panic alarm under the counter.

Police arrived on the scene with a K-9 unit, but the dog was unable to track the scent past a parking lot on Crabapple Road.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety at 678-297-6300.
