January 7, 2021

On the evening of December 22, 2020, Gordonsville Police were dispatched to the Exxon gas station in Gordonsville at 477 Gordonsville Hwy.

The clerk reported that one male subject requested to purchase $30 worth of lottery tickets. While the clerk was completing the transaction, the subject produced a firearm and demanded the lottery tickets. The clerk handed over the tickets, and the subject fled out the front door on foot.

Later, the lottery tickets were attempted to be redeemed at a store in Jackson, TN; however, the clerk of that store informed the subject that they could only be redeemed at the corporate offices of the lottery commission in Nashville. The subject left the Jackson, TN store in a black Chrysler minivan.

The individual was described as a black male of about six feet in height, wearing a gray zip-up hoodie and blue jeans. The subject is believed to be an opportunistic robber who was traveling down Interstate 40.
