Robbers hold up Family Dollar on Walton Way

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County deputies are looking for two men who they say robbed the Family Dollar on Walton Way Wednesday. 

Two men walked into the store, located at 1713 Walton Way, at about 5:22 p.m. and took an undisclosed amount of money at gunpoint, Sgt. Monica Williams said. They then fled the scene on foot towards the rear of the business.

One man was wearing a green do-rag style hat, a gray long-sleeved T-shirt, black plants with a gray stripe down the side, a white or blue hospital-style mask and black sneakers. 

The second man was wearing a gray sweater with a blue stripe on the sleeves, blue pants, gray or blue sneakers with white shoelaces, sunglasses, a white or blue hospital mask. Deputies said he was also armed with a black semi-automatic handgun. 

Anyone with information about the identity of the men can contact Sgt. Dan Carrier or Investigator Tim Rzasa in the Criminal Investigations Division at 706-821-1080.
