Gunman robs store on N. Main St.

MOULTRIE — A robber armed with a revolver and disguised with a mask made off with cash from a Moultrie dollar store Wednesday evening.

The robber entered Super Dollar, 1017 N. Main St., at about 7:40 p.m. and forced an employee to empty the register, Moultrie Police Department reports said.

“He pointed the gun at her and demanded money,” police Inv. Raul Leal said. “Nobody was injured, which is good.”

The gunman was described as a young black male, possibly in his 20s. He was dressed in all black clothing and shoes and had his face covered with a ski mask,  and is about 5-feet-8-inches or 5-feet-9 and weighs about 160-170 pounds.

The robbery happened a short time before the 8 p.m. closing time for the discount store, Leal said.

Police ask that anyone with information that could help apprehend the gunmen leave a tip at (229) 890-5451.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
