A robbery in the falls is shaking up a local business. The Cells-U-More on Southwest Parkway was robbed Wednesday morning, and the owner says it's not the first time. Both robberies have the owner making a tough decision.
Cells-U-More Owner Roy Davoult says he is permanently closing the store at 1506 Southwest Parkway. He says the employees at that location have the week off and will be transferred to other Cells-U-More locations. Davoult says he decided to shut down his Southwest Parkway location for safety reasons, associates.
He says this is the, "Second robbery in two months. And for the safety of the associates and our employees, we decided to shut down that location; move them to our other locations, and we're installing cameras in our stores right now."
The manager on location during the robbery says the thief acted in a similar way to a previous robbery in April. He says the robber, "Ordered everybody to the floor; ordered one person back to the safe after taking the money out of the register. Ordered both people to stay face down as they left the back of the building." The manager on duty, who didn't want to give his name for safety reasons, told Newschannel 6 the robber seemed nervous and was carrying a handgun.
Davoult says he hopes police catch both robbers who targeted his store. He says, "It seems to be a rash of burglaries going on, robberies. Hopefully these people can get caught and stopped."
The manager on duty when the store was robbed says the suspect has a dark complexion, stands about 5'6" to 5'8", and weighs about 160 to 180 pounds. The Cells-U-More Owner says the robber got away with about 500 dollars. If you have any information about this case, call crime stoppers at 940-322-9888.
