Barrow investigators look for witnesses to armed robbery

By B.J. Williams News Director
BETHLEHEM - As Barrow County investigators continue to look for leads in last month's armed robbery of a Dollar General store, they are now releasing photos of possible witnesses to the crime, hoping they will come forward to offer information in the case.

The two men whose photos were released Wednesday to the media are not considered suspects in the case, according to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office.

The armed robbery took place the night of November 27 at the Dollar General store on Gifton Thomas Road in Bethlehem, according to information released earlier.

Barrow County investigators said two employees were in the story when three black males entered the store just after 10:00 p.m. One employee was forced to the ground and held at gunpoint, while the other managed to lock herself in an office and call authorities. Neither was hurt in the incident.

An unknown amount of money was stolen.

Barrow County investigators are asking anyone with information to call 770-307-3080, ext. 3083. Emails may also be sent to the case investigator at
