Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0

Moultrie Observer - Clerk battles robber A simple story with a happy ending.
MOULTRIE — A Sylvester man got much more than he bargained for when he allegedly tried to rob a Moultrie package store at gunpoint Monday evening. He fled from the scene while being shot at by the store owner, and he was later shot by a Norman Park police officer.
A struggle ensued when the robbery started, but the store-owner was able to retrieve his own gun. When he saw real firepower answering his robbery, the bad guy ran like a rabbit.

He was later arrested.
[The goof-ball] was charged with robbery, two counts of possession of tools during the commission of a crime and aggravated assault of a police officer.
The store owner was fine, and the police officer was fine (though the squad car was shot 4 or 5 times).

The good guys came out on top of this one, and a bad guy is in jail.
