The Troy Police Department is investigating an armed robbery Monday morning at Food World in Troy.

A black male came into the grocery store, which is located on South Brundidge Street, at about 5:45 a.m., said Troy Police Chief Anthony Everage. The suspect told a cashier he was armed and told her to give him money.

Although the clerk said she did not see a gun, she gave the subject an undisclosed amount of cash, Everage said. He fled the store.

The Monday morning incident is the second armed robbery in Troy in less than a week, said Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, public information officer with the Troy Police Department.

A black male who claimed to have a gun robbed the Little C Texaco on State Highway 87 in Troy Friday, Scarbrough said. The incident occurred at about 12:45 a.m.

"It is undetermined if the two robberies were done by the same individual or if they are linked." he said. "We continue to investigate both incidents."

Police ask anyone with information about either of these two robberies to contact the Troy Police Department at 566-0500 or call the Secret Witness Line at 566-5555.
