Po­lice are search­ing for ban­dits who robbed a Shell sta­tion on Brown Bridge Road on New Year’s Day.

The sta­tion at­ten­dant told Newton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice in­ves­ti­ga­tors that she went out to lock the ice­box be­tween 8:50 and 9:30 p.m. when she felt some­thing on her back and a man told her to “walk in­side the store or he would shoot her,” ac­cord­ing to Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Cort­ney Mor­ri­son. The man al­legedly told the 51-year-old clerk not to move or turn around.

The em­ployee heard an­other man come into the store, and the duo fled with an undis­closed amount of cash and mer­chan­dise. The clerk was un­able to give a de­scrip­tion of the men or a gun.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the rob­bery is urged to call the sher­iff’s of­fice at (678) 625-5007 or visit on­line at www. new­ton­sh­er­if­fga.org. All tips can be given anony­mously.
