Man wearing wig robs Family Dollar at gunpoint



The Memphis Police Department is looking for a man who robbed a Family Dollar at gunpoint.

Police say that on May 13, a man wearing a long black curly wig and a bright yellow hoodie went to the Family Dollar on Coleman Road and was met outside by the manager.

The manager let the man in, and that’s when police say he pointed a gun at her and demanded money from the register and the safe.

Surveillance video shows the manager attempting to leave the store. The suspect violently pulls her back inside and demands that she put the money from the register into a gray plastic Family Dollar bag.

The suspect took the bag and fled the scene on foot.

It is unknown if the suspect was occupying a vehicle.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at (901)-528-CASH.
