The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office responded Tuesday (February 6, 2018) at 7:00 pm to a report of an armed robbery at a Dollar General Store on Highway 25 south of Franklinton.
Store security video shows three masked persons enter the business, each carrying a pistol. Their faces were covered and each wore gloves. One appeared to be female. A female customer was forced to lie on the floor and her car keys were taken. The robbers tried to enter the female customer's car but they could not unlock the door.
The trio fled on foot, headed south on Highway 25 to a waiting vehicle which was out of sight of the store. The robbers got away with an undetermined amount of money and a large amount of cigarettes.
