Police searching for man who robbed north Fulton gas station

Sandy Springs police are still searching for a suspect who robbed an Exxon gas station on Saturday.

According to a description from police, he was a male with moles on his face who had a medium build and was wearing a yellow hat, a black jacket, faded blue jeans, black shoes and had an orange towel hanging out of his back pocket.

The suspect fled the store with about $1,000 and was last seen running behind a Waffle House near Northridge Road.

According to a police report, officers arrived at the scene, 8325 Roswell Road, around 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 25 and spoke with an employee at the gas station. The employee told police that the man entered the store, walked directly to the counter and slipped a note to the cashier that read, “I have a gun. Put the money from the register in the bag.”

The employee said he never saw the gun, but saw an item “protruding” from the suspect’s pocket, according to the police report.

Police said the employee put small bills and coins in a plastic bag and gave it to the suspect. The employee said another customer was entering as the suspect was leaving, and held the door open for him.

Police took finger prints from the scene. There was also security camera footage of the incident, but Sandy Springs police information officer Sam Worsham said the file was corrupted. Police are working to obtain additional footage.

Anyone with information about this incident can call Sandy Springs police at 770-551-6900.
