MADISON, Ala. (WHNT)– Madison Police are looking for three men they believe are responsible for robbing a grocery store Monday evening.
Police said it happened around 5:30 p.m. at the Publix in Madison on 72 and Hughes Road.
Captain Terrell Cook said three suspects were hanging around the front of the store at the customer service desk. When the clerk received a phone call, they approached. The unknown caller demanded the clerk hand money to the men. The clerk called police after doing so.
Capt. Cook called this type of robbery "unusual." Investigators are looking for information from anyone who may have witnessed the crime, or the suspects' getaway.
Cook said there were no injuries, and the suspects did not display any firearms. But he needs the public's help identifying the men to prevent it from happening again.
"There is a potential for somebody to be hurt. At this point, we don't know if they had firearms or not, they certainly acted as if they did. And so we just want to minimize the risk to the public or any innocent bystanders in case they try this again," he said.
Police are communicating with law enforcement in Smyrna, Tennessee where a similar crime occurred last week.
If you have any information about this robbery, Madison Police ask you to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
