On July 27 at approximately 2 a.m., the Dothan Police Department responded to the Kangaroo store located at 4196 Ross Clark Circle in reference to an armed robbery.
Investigators say a lone subject, described as being a black male wearing a long white t-shirt, blue jeans and a knitted hat with something covering a portion of his face, entered the business with a rifle and demanded the employee give him all the money in the register. The employee complied and the suspect left the building running south on Headland Avenue.
Approximately 30-minutes later, Dothan Police communications received a second call of an armed robbery which occurred at 735 Ross Clark Circle.
