FBI Bulletin: Special Agent in Charge J. Britt Johnson, FBI Atlanta, requests the public's assistance in identifying those responsible for a series of armed robberies around the metro Atlanta area targeting Walmart stores
Since May 2015, there have been approximately eight armed robberies of Walmart stores in the metro Atlanta area that are believed by law enforcement to be related. All robberies listed below have a very similar modus operandi. Between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and midnight, an armed robber wearing a surgical mask will enter the store, brandish a firearm, and rob the nearest cashier. In at least two of the robberies, it is believed that there is a black female posing as a customer inside the store at the time of the robbery, and it is believed she is coordinating efforts with the armed robber prior to the actual robbery occurring and then leaving the store after the robbery is conducted.
