Armed Robbery, Kidnapping in Walmart Parking Lot
Gainesville business man was on his way to the bank with several thousand dollars from his multiple businesses in town.
"It's very unusual to happen in a crowded area in daylight," said Randy Roberts, GPD Detective.
Just after 11:00 A.M., he pulled into the Walmart parking lot on Archer Road to use his cell phone.
"Two people approached him, two males; he rolled down his window when they waved to him," said Roberts.
The men jumped in the victim's car and pulled out guns.
"Forced him to drive around to the back of Walmart where a third suspect followed them in another vehicle," said Roberts.
The victim was forced to drive about three miles, to a remote location on Southwest 57th Avenue.
The victim was robbed and left in his car on the dirt road. The suspects, three black males in their 20s, remain at large.
They were driving an older model, blue/green Chevy four-door Sedan, according to police.
