A possibly juvenile suspect who robbed a local variety store at gunpoint late Thursday told employees "you know the drill" before escaping with an undisclosed amount of money, according to a Garland County sheriff's incident report.

A clerk, 27, at Dollar General, 830 Mountain Pine Road, told sheriff's investigators that around 9 p.m. Thursday she was working at the store when a biracial male wearing a black shirt, white shorts, and a pink mask entered the business and approached the counter "with a black handgun."

She said the suspect pointed the gun at her and said, "You know the drill." The manager on duty, 26, said he opened the register for the clerk and then gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money from inside.

Both the manager and clerk said the suspect then fled the area on foot, running toward Blacksnake Road and then toward Crystal Hill Road.

Both witnesses further described the suspect as "small in stature" and noted he was possibly a juvenile.

No one was injured in the incident which was still under investigation Friday. Anyone with any information about the robbery or possible suspects should contact sheriff's investigators at 622-3660.

The same store was reportedly robbed on Oct. 19, 2018, around 10 p.m. by a male armed with a gun who forced the clerk and an assistant manager to remove money from the register and safe.
