MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman may have prevented an armed robbery after she reported seeing two men with guns putting on additional coverings Wednesday night.

Moultrie police officers were called to an apartment on Fourth Street Southwest at 11:24 p.m. Wednesday. The officers first met with a witness, who stated she was driving around the complex when they saw two unknown men wearing all black and carrying guns. They were seen putting on gloves and masks, and the witness called a friend and told her about what she saw.

The officer then met with Tokesha Bailey, and she stated she saw the two men in her back yard and called 911. The men fled when they heard the sirens on the patrol cars, and Bailey stated someone had tried to sell her boyfriend a pistol a couple days before the incident.

Another officer stopped a Chevrolet Tahoe on South Main Street about 1 a.m. Thursday where one person ran from officers, but it was not known if the men in the Tahoe were the same ones seen at the apartment complex. Officers did find a .38-caliber revolver and two bullets in the vehicle following the stop and foot chase.
