Last week Carroll St. Liquors was robbed at gunpoint in Tullahoma by an unknown subject. Chief Paul Blackwell told WMSR News that the subject looks very similar to the person involved in other robberies in the area. The subject entered the store, grabbed the clerk, and held them at gunpoint while demanding money from the cash register. The stores surveillance system shows the suspect entering the store from the west and exiting in the same direction.
