Robbery 1st Degree Investigation
The Anniston Police Department is investigating a robbery occurring at a residence on the 2700 Block of West River Street. Two men reported the robbery. They say they were on their way to pick up money someone owed them when they were told to go to a residence. They told police that after arriving, they were forced by the suspect to empty their pockets and told not to leave the home. The two men believe a gun was also fired. Police say the victims’ Jeep Wrangler was then stolen and the men had to escape through a window inside the home. A tip from the public led Anniston police to the Jeep taken during the robbery. The case is still under investigation.
