Bartow County deputies were dispatched to Dollar General on Cassville Road in Cartersville on Sunday morning at around 6:37 in reference to an armed robbery that had just occurred.
 
The store manager stated she was about to leave to do the daily deposit of cash from the previous day’s sales at a bank. While walking to her vehicle, she was approached by a black male wearing all back clothing and a black hat.
 
The male asked her what time they opened. When she told him 7:30, he told her “don’t move and give me what you got” while pointing a firearm at her. She gave the male the cash she had in hand and he commanded her to keep walking to her vehicle.
 
When she started to walk towards her vehicle, the male ran to the north side of the store up the parking lot towards Joe Frank Harris Parkway. While the man started running, she ran back into the store, locked the doors, and called 911.
 
According to Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader, the accident was between a Chevrolet Silverado and a tractor-trailer.
