LAGRANGE, Ga. (WTVM) - The Troup County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an overnight armed robbery at J&J Food Mart.

Deputies were dispatched to the business in the 1200 block of Bartley Rd. at approximately 2:25 a.m. on June 28 after an alarm was activated.

They found that the glass front door had been smashed and a burglary had occurred inside.

The owners were able to pull security camera footage that appeared to show a white Nissan Sentra and two men pull into the parking lot before the passenger gets out and smashes the door.
