Lanett auto parts store robbed

An auto parts store in Lanett was robbed by an armed woman Tuesday afternoon.

At around 12:45 p.m., a woman entered the O'reilly Auto Parts store on Broad Ave., pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the clerk and demanded money from the register, according to a police department press release.

The suspect then ran out of the store to a charcoal-colored vehicle driven by a man.

They fled southbound on Highway 29 into Valley.

Witnesses described the woman was being about 5-foot-2-inches tall and of average build, with a dark complexion and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow and black striped shirt and jogging pants, put on inside-out.

The car in which the woman and the man left the scene is described as a Honda or an Acura with dark tinted windows.

Anyone having information on the crime or the identity of the two suspects is asked to call the Lanett Police Department at 334-644-5236 or the CrimeStoppers hotline at 334-756-8200.
