Man robs video store, then apologizes

Police are looking for the man who robbed an Oconee County video store, then apologized before making off with the cash, the Athens Banner-Herald reported.

The robbery happened around 10 a.m. Wednesday, just as the clerk for Vision Video's was arriving to work, according to the report.

"He must have been waiting for me, because he was here when I came out of the back room," the clerk told the newspaper. "He asked me to hang up the phone and hand him the till. So I handed him the till and turned away so he could do his thing."

The suspect emptied the cash register drawer, told the clerk he had a drug habit, apologized for robbing him, and left, the newspaper said.
