Robbers Fall Through Store Ceiling—And Into Crossfire

posted on August 30, 2016

A Discount Check Cashing store in south Macon, Ga., had a couple of unexpected visitors drop by Saturday morning. That’s when two men trying to rob the store fell through the ceiling—and into an exchange of gunfire.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that an employee heard noises in the ceiling, and the two men fell through the roof when the manager investigated. As one of the suspects robbed the business, another man in the store traded gunfire with the other robber. One suspect, Rarrekcus Delbridge, 22, was taken to a local medical center after being shot in the leg. He was charged with aggravated assault and criminal attempt to commit armed robbery.

The second suspect escaped, and it was not known if he was hit by gunfire.
