Restau­rant on Crow­ell Road held up at gun­point

The Covington News - - Front Page - By Am­ber Pittman

A masked man al­legedly used what em­ploy­ees thought looked like a ma­chine gun to rob a fast food restau­rant Satur­day evening on Crow­ell Road, ac­cord­ing to re­ports from the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment.

At roughly 8:40 p.m. a young black male dressed all in black, wear­ing a ski mask and gloves en­tered the Sub­way restau­rant. Ac­cord­ing to em­ploy­ees the man had a mus­cu­lar build and was roughly 5-foot-8-inches tall and weighed ap­prox­i­mately 165 pounds.

The man pro­duced what ap­peared to be a ma­chine gun, ac­cord­ing to re­ports from em­ploy­ees and told the clerk to open the drawer and give him the money. The man left the store on foot with an undis­closed amount of cash and headed north to­ward the in­ter­state, ac­cord­ing to 1st Lt. Mark Mitchell with the NCSO. No ve­hi­cle was spot­ted by the restau­rant em­ploy­ees.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact the NCSO crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion divi­sion at (678) 625-1403 or to leave a tip on­line at www.sher­iff.co.new­ton.ga.us. All tips can re­main anony­mous.
