Man absconds with money, check

ATHENS — A man who was supposed to exchange a check for money took off with both Thursday after fighting a clerk.

Athens police Lt. Floyd Johnson said the man gave the clerk at Express 99 on Alabama 99 a check for money. As the clerk verified the check, the customer grabbed both the check and money and ran, making this a third-degree robbery case. The clerk pursued and scuffled with the robber, who escaped and left in a maroon Chevrolet Lumina.

Athens police are searching for a white male, about 23 years old, who is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs about 155 pounds.

Anyone with information can call 233-8700.
