Masked men rob Brampton Parkers
Police seek help to ID armed suspects

Four men robbed a Brampton Avenue convenience store at gunpoint early Wednesday morning, and Statesboro police are seeking information on possible suspects.

Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said four black men, all between the ages of 18-22, wore some sort of cover over their faces. The four entered Parker’s convenience store around 2 a.m. Wednesday, and “held the employees at gunpoint while taking an undisclosed amount of cash and other miscellaneous items.”

The suspects then fled on foot. Officers who arrived on scene searched the area, but did not find the offenders, he said.

The suspects wore dark clothing. Their faces were covered during the incident, but detectives are not releasing further descriptions of the face coverings at this time, he said.

No one was injured, according to Turner.

A Parker’s store on Southeast Broad Street in Metter was robbed at gunpoint around 5 a.m. Saturday, with the lone suspect described as a black man, standing about 5’9” and weighing around 220 pounds, wearing a bandana over his face.

Statesboro Police Cpl. Justin Samples said there is no indication at this time that the robberies are related.

Anyone with information concerning the case is asked to contact the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911.

Also, anonymous tips may be made online at or by sending a text (TIPSSPD followed by your message) to 274637 (CRIMES). All information is strictly confidential, Turner said.
