Two attempted robbery suspects still at large


Female clerk injured by one suspect

by Mark Millican

Two men who attempted to rob a cell phone store in East Ellijay last week and injured a store clerk in the process are still at large, according to local authorities and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Store clerk Jackie Pritchett said she was alone at The Phone Store for a few minutes on Tuesday, Nov. 17, while her mother-in-law had gone to pick up Pritchett’s grandchildren at school.

“We usually lock the door if we go to the rest room and we’re by ourselves ... (but) I ran in there and back out real fast, and then I saw a guy standing on the porch,” she said. “I thought, ‘Oh, my God, how embarrassing.’ Then I saw another guy standing at my desk.”

Things went downhill from there.
