Athens County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a gunman that robbed the Foodland Grocery Store on The Plains.
Sheriff Pat Kelly says a lone white man with a handgun robbed the Foodland Grocery Store on The Plains around 10:10 last night.
Kelly says the robber is believed to have been in the store on Tuesday around closing time and told employees he lost his cell phone. He returned Wednesday and asked store employees if he could look in the back of the store for his phone.
The suspect returned to the front of the store, pulled a handgun and calmly told the three employees to get on the floor. He then had the employees take the money out of the safe. He had zip ties on his belt and secured the employees together and placed them in a room off the deli.
The gunman exited the side door and left in a four door light colored vehicle possibly a Sonata or like model vehicle.
Kelly says the suspect was wearing a gray pullover long sleeve with a red ball cap.
