Police Searching for Suspect in Armed Robbery of Fulton County Drugstore

One of the challenges facing business owners in the Atlanta area is to make their establishments secure while maintaining a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Fortunately, a video security system installed by an Atlanta alarm company provides the tools to monitor your business and catch any unwelcome intruders, while also remaining in the background so that customers feel comfortable.

According to CBS Atlanta, a local affiliate, law enforcement officials in Fulton County, Georgia, are searching for an armed suspect who walked into a CVS pharmacy on Old National Highway and held up a clerk at gunpoint. The incident took place around 7:30 a.m. on June 5. The suspect stole cash from the register and ran out of the store without injuring anyone. The man was caught on a camera system, and at one point looked directly into the camera. Although his face was somewhat obscured by a hat and sunglasses, investigators now have an idea of what the man looks like, giving them an advantage in identifying and locating him.

Police are urging anyone with information about the crime or suspect to contact the Fulton County Police Department.
