Two people trying to sell meat in Southeast Moultrie were robbed at gunpoint Monday evening.

Brian McKever, of Albany, and Cadaryl Cooper, of Pelham, had stopped in the Forrest Hill area, on Seventh Avenue Southeast, about 7 p.m. Monday to talk with some people about meat they were selling. The two are employed by Genuine Midwestern Beef, which Moultrie Police investigator Dave Underwood identified as an Albany company.

The two had begun showing their wares when someone pulled a gun on them, Underwood said.

“He was looking in the beef, turned around and he had a gun sticking in his face,” the investigator said.

More than one person was involved in the robbery, Underwood said, and they got away with $300 in cash plus $800 in meat.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt, he said.
