Armed robber strikes two Commerce businesses

By Kimberly Sizemore Anchor/Reporter

Two armed robberies in Commerce now have authorities looking for the suspect they believe is responsible in both incidents.

According to a social media post from the Commerce Police Department, the first robbery took place on Monday morning around 10:30 a.m. at the Walgreens on North Broad Street. No one was injured.

Later that evening, around 10:56 p.m., the Domino’s just beside Walgreens, also on North Broad Street, was robbed. In that incident, an employee was slightly injured in a self-defense move, but did not require medical attention.

At both locations, the man displayed a weapon and each time he fled on foot.

The man is described as a white male in his 30’s, with a large number of tattoos on both arms. He is approximately 6’2” tall and weighs around 200lbs.

Anyone with any information on the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Detective Ferguson or Detective Galloway at 706-335-1847 or 706-335-3200.
