Live Oak Family Dollar robbed at gunpoint

Customers forced to back of store while masked gunmen make off with money, goods

Live Oak — At least two suspects are being sought following the Monday morning robbery of Family Dollar at the intersection of 11th Street and Ohio Avenue in Live Oak, according to Live Oak Police Department Det. Justin Bates.

Shortly after the store opened, two individuals wearing gloves and masks entered the store with handguns, Bates said. They forced five customers to the back of the store and took several undisclosed items and an undetermined amount of cash from the registers and safe. Law enforcement was notified by dispatch around 8:30. One employee was on duty during the 15 minute robbery, Bates said.

Witnesses told authorities the subjects fled the scene in what is believed to be an older model car that is white in color. However, witnesses were unable to determine the year, make and model of the vehicle. Dispatch was told that the vehicle drove backwards from the store so the license plate was not able to be seen.

Anyone with any information regarding this crime is urged to contact Det. Bates at 386-362-7463.
