Dougherty County Police are at the Pitt Stop curb store at 3225 Sylvester Road, the scene of an attempted armed robbery at 4:40 p.m. Apparently two men wearing masks, one red, the other blue, attempted the robbery, but ran away. Police are currently looking for them.

They wore masks and ran away? I wouldn't call them "men".

Maybe if the owners were related to Philip Phillips, this would be solved in 12 hours!! Funny how the Phillips pawn shop break in was solved in 12 hours, but the police cant solve a crime committed in broad daylight on one of the major thoroughfares in and out of Albany. How many snatch and grabs does that make in East Albany this week? How many arrests have been made?

Don't forget that Phillips Pawn shop break in was done with CITY EQUIPMENT. Recond that encouraged the speed and not Phillip Phillips?

Hitting a "stop and rob" may put some smokes, beer, and spice on the street. But hitting a pawn shop puts guns and velvet pictures of Elvis on the street. Perhaps the folks that lived near the Phillip's thugs became concerned about the guns being used to rob the 'hood and for once decided to know the purps. While the guns are back in lockup, the Elvis pictures are likely being fenced so be on the lookout.
