COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Columbus Police Department is asking the public to help identify the suspect in an armed robbery of a liquor store in March.

On March 19, CPD responded to Hidden Lake Bottle Shop, located at 3465 Macon Road, on an armed robbery call.

The clerk said that a black male entered the store armed with a black pistol, and pointed the pistol at him and demanded money. 

After the suspect received an undetermined amount of money, he made the clerk lay on the floor, and the suspect fired a round into the floor next to the clerk’s head. The suspect fled the business in an unknown direction. 

There were no injuries reported.

The suspect was described as a black male, 6’ feet, 200 pounds, short black hair, and last seen wearing a blue bandana over his mouth, dark jacket with a black shirt, dark pants and black and white shoes.

The Columbus Police Department Robbery/Assault Unit assumed the investigation.

We are asking anyone with any information about this crime to contact Corporal Darrell Middlebrooks at (706)-225-4329 or the Robbery/Assault unit at (706)-653-3400.
