A woman was parked at Wal-Mart just after midnight on July 4 when she was robbed by a man who said he had a gun.
The victim said she was in her car with her two children waiting for her husband, who was in the store, when a man tapped on her window, according to Banks County Sheriff Charles Chapman. She said she opened the window and the man, descried as a slender white man with sandy blond hair, demanded her purse and said he had a gun. She gave him her purse and he left in a beige or gold colored four-door vehicle, driving toward Jackson County.
No one was injured.
The Banks County Criminal Investigations Division is investigating the armed robbery.
