No one was hurt, but the Cricket Wireless manager, Michael May says he’s tired of the crime.

“It’s getting ridiculous and scary for my employees,” said May. “One called me earlier, she doesn’t know if she could come into work today. I can’t help but feel and understand her.”

Captain Brad Wolfe, with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, says deputies are being extra vigilant.

“Of course when you’re the victim of a crime, you feel like nobody is watching, nobody cares, but we are,” said Captain Wolfe. “We wish we could be there all the time, but we can’t. We know there’s a pattern going on, so we’re stepping up patrol as well other specialized things we won’t share.”

May says his store will continue to use their security system and be extra cautious, in hopes these crimes don’t repeat.

One of them men in Monday’s robbery was described as tall with dreads and wearing a white shirt. If you have any information, call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
