D'Lo Truck Stop Robbed

By MARLAN JONES,

At approximately 5:45 a.m. on January 3 a vehicle was driven into the D’Lo Truck Stop located on Highway 49 South. The surveillance video showed a vehicle driven by one subject crash through the front doors. The subject then exited the vehicle and held the clerk, at what appeared to be gunpoint, and demanded money. The clerk gave the subject the cash drawer. The subject then attempted to back the car out of the store, but became stuck at the entrance before the video ended. The store owner explained that the subject exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

The Simpson County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident. Sheriff Donald O’Cain said the investigation is ongoing and no information could be released at this time. He did reveal that the office believes that there were two subjects involved. We will continue to update this story as more information is available.
