Stick-up

He pulled the black gun from the waistband of his jeans. He pointed it at a 60-year-old gas station clerk and said, “Where’s the money at?”

Andrew Berry was sweeping the floor of the Ellenwood gas station, when the armed man spoke to him, according to Clayton County Police reports. Berry looked up at the gun and said, “I don’t know.”

The man then turned, pointing the gun at the head of the younger man, 22-year-old Surjit Sungh, the clerk who was standing next to the register. He demanded money, took what was in the till, and walked out, according to the witnesses’ statements and the security cameras.

He said, “Thank y’all very much.”

He walked out of the Fuel Center at 5635 Ga. Highway 42 at about 10 p.m., Officer J.E. Ivey reported. He held a black, semi-automatic, 9 mm gun, and $1,269 in cash, plus a $300 check made out to a Jimmy Johnson.
