The Dollar General on Highway 46 in Pulaski is the latest such store to be robbed at gunpoint, after a masked man held up two clerks Sunday night.

Regional law enforcement officials are working together to investigate a rash of similar armed robberies at Dollar Generals and convenience stores in several counties. Candler County sheriff's Capt. Justin Wells said his office is asking for the public's help regarding Sunday's robbery, or any of the others.

The suspect entered the store around 9 p.m., showed a gun and demanded cash. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, leaving neither clerk injured, Wells said.

Like other recent, similar robberies, including stores in Brooklet, Statesboro and Claxton, the man wore a black, hood-style mask.

Surveillance video at the Pulaski Dollar General showed the gunman wearing all black clothing over a white long-sleeved shirt with black bands on the sleeves.

Wells did not elaborate further on the suspect's escape route, saying the investigation continues, but in other similar robberies, police dogs tracked the suspect to where he is believed to have entered a vehicle.
