PREVIOUS STORY: The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery that took place late Sunday afternoon at a South Lee Highway business. 

Investigators say The One Stop Mini Mart, located at 3096 South Lee Highway, was robbed by a white male wearing jeans, tennis shoes, a light-colored hooded jacket with a ski mask covering his face.

He pointed a handgun at the clerk on duty and demanded money. The robbery took place minutes after a white female driving a white four door Hyundai, entered the store and made a purchase. The man left the store, running down South Lee Highway, where he met the white Hyundai and jumped into the passenger seat, and the vehicle headed south.

Video was obtained from the One Stop Mini Mart, as well as from another nearby business. It is believed the male and female had an approximately 4-year-old female in the vehicle with them.

If you recognize the persons in the photographs, or have information about the robbery, please contact investigators at 423-728-7311.
