The Woodbury Police Department is investigating an armed robbery at Cash Express in Woodbury which occurred at around 5 p.m. Monday.
Police Chief Kevin Mooneyham said that an unidentified black male entered Cash Express at 103 East Main St. armed with what was described as a chrome handgun.
Chief Mooneyham said the robber forced the clerk behind the counter, took money from the register, and left.
The robber was described as being between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. He was wearing a black t-shirt with a red design on it and a boonie hat.
According to Chief Mooneyham, the robber left Cash Express on foot but was later observed getting into a silver Dodge Avenger. The vehicle was then observed heading toward McMinnville.
Prior to the robbery, the vehicle along with the robber and two other occupants was observed on video getting gas at Woodbury Farmers Co-op.
The WPD is actively investigating the robbery. Police are hoping that video footage from Cash Express and Farmers Co-op will provide useful information in helping to identify the suspects and vehicle. Chief Mooneyham said they will be discussing the information with law enforcement agencies in surrounding counties in their search.
Anyone with information should contact Cannon County Dispatch at 615-563-4322.
WPD officers John House, Pat Fann and John Fesmire conducted the initial investigation.
