MOULTRIE — Three gunmen made off with an unknown amount of money in an after-hours robbery of Winn-Dixie Monday night.

Moultrie police responded to the store at 10:29 p.m. in reference to a 911 call that had not been hung up, but they were met at the door by four employees who told them the store had been robbed.

Two of the employees, Patrick Johnson and Zack McQueen, stated three black males came into the store with guns and told them to get on the ground. The robbers took Johnson to the store’s office and told him not to get up.

A third employee, Sheila Waldon, was inside the office counting money and saw the robbers enter the store on the security camera monitor. She tried to tell the store manager, Victor Powell, but was left speechless because she was scared.

Waldon did get Powell’s attention, and he called 911 but left the line open when the men came into the office. They ordered Waldon to open the safe, and they stole an unknown amount of money from it.

An investigator was called to the store, and the employee’s statements and store security tapes were taken as evidence. No arrests had been made and no suspects were named at the time of the report.
