DeKalb police: Walgreens held up by woman in her 60s

Remember the Granddad Bandit, who robbed banks in Georgia and 12 other states? Looks like there's a Grandma Bandit on the loose now.

DeKalb County police are asking for the public's help in identifying a grandmotherly bandit who held up a North Druid Hills Road drugstore earlier this week.

The robbery happened Monday at the Walgreens store in the 2300 block of North Druid Hills Road. The suspect walked up to a clerk at the checkout counter, pulled out a handgun and demanded cash.

DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish described the suspect as a white female between the ages of 60 and 70, 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds.

"According to witnesses, her swollen red cheeks were a distinctive facial feature," Parish said. The woman was wearing a baseball cap with a white and red "G" in the center, sunglasses, a brown jacket and stone-washed jeans.

Parish asked that anyone recognizing the woman call investigators at 770-724-7890.
