COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A woman approached the counter to pay for a soda, but instead stole money from the cash register at a Southside store this week, Columbus police said.
On Wednesday, Jan. 11, the suspect entered the Dollar General store on the 1500 block of Lockbourne Road at approximately 12:41 p.m.
The woman walked up to the counter to pay for a soda, but when the cashier opened the register, the suspect allegedly said, “Give me all the money or I will shoot you,” according to Columbus police.
