Armed robbery at The Hop In gas station; suspect remains at large


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Just before midnight, an armed suspect entered the gas station at Third Avenue and Ross Clark Circle demanding money.

“When we got there we determined that the suspect was wearing a bandana and a beenie cap to cover his face, he did rob the clerk for an undisclosed amount of money.” Dothan Police Lieutenant Doug Magill said.

Although this is the second armed robbery this month, the crimes are not related.

“Sometimes they happened back to back, sometimes it can be the same person, but by no means is this indicative of a massive ring. Lt.Doug Magill said.

Dothan Police tracked with K9s in the area of Coe Dairy Road but weren’t able to find the robber. Homes in that area with exterior security cameras should check the footage and notify DPD of anything suspicious.
