The Dollar Tree located on the 200 block of West Gen. Screven Way was robbed near closing time, Sept. 16.
According to Hinesville Police LT. Rhett Dill, the manager of the store said it was near closing time, 9 p.m. when she noticed a man lingering in the rear of the store. The manager went to remind him the store was closing when he allegedly brandished a handgun at the manager. The man allegedly led the manager to an office where the store’s cash was kept and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
When the man exited the store, he entered a white vehicle which resembled a Nissan Altima and was reported to have driven in the direction of Glennville on E.G. Miles Parkway. The store manager was not injured in the robbery.
