Jiffy Store robbed at gunpoint Sunday
SoVaNow.com / November 21, 2012The Jiffy Food Store, located on John Randolph Boulevard in South Boston, was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night shortly before 9 p.m. when a man walked into the store, brandished a firearm and demanded money from the cashier.
The suspect, described as five feet, eight inches tall with a brown skin complexion, was wearing a black hoodie with a mask covering his face. He left the store taking an undisclosed amount of money.
Sgt. F. M. Edmunds of the South Boston Police Department responded to the robbery and was assisted by a tracking dog and handler from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, but police had no success in apprehending the man.
It was the second time in a matter of days that the store had been struck by thieves. Earlier on Thursday morning around 5:10 a.m. when the first employee came to work, he discovered the ATM machine open and the safe burglarized. An undisclosed amount of money had been taken. Entry apparently was gained through the roof.
Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the South Boston Police Department at (434) 575-4273 or the Halifax County Crime Line at (434) 476-8445. Information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offender could lead to a reward of up to $1,000.
