The Big Apple on Stone Street in Augusta was robbed again, after a similar robbery a few months ago.

How Did the Robbery Go Down?

Some stores seem to be more vulnerable to robberies than others, and the Big Apple Convenience Store on Stone Street seems to be one of them. The Augusta Police Department is once again investigating a robbery at the store, this time at approximately 1:21 Friday morning. Officials received a call from someone at the store who said an unidentified man had walked into the building, displayed a firearm, and demanded an undisclosed amount of money and merchandise. The person then fled the scene before police arrived. No one was hurt.

What Does the Suspect Look Like?

At the last report, the suspect remained at large. He's described as a white male, approximately 6'3" to 6'6" tall, 160 to 200 pounds, and was wearing a dark blue sweatshirt, black sneakers, and dark gray sweatpants. The man was also carrying a backpack.

Didn't This Happen a Few Months Ago at This Store?

The same store was robbed in late September, in much the same manner. A man walked in and showed a firearm to the clerk, before demanding an undisclosed amount of money. As in the current case, the suspect fled the scene before police arrived. However, in the September robbery, the suspect was shorter, between 5'3" and 5'7" tall. He was identified and arrested shortly after the robbery, during a traffic stop.
