Cash Advance Store Robbed In Foley

Posted: Updated:
FOLEY, Alabama -

A terrifying night at the office for Candice Frizzell.

"He was behind us with a gun at our back," says Frizzell.

Frizzell and another employee were closing the Approved Cash Advance store on Highway 59 in Foley Friday night when a man wearing a ski mask walked in, pulled a gun and demanded money.

Frizzell stuffed 43-hundred bucks into a bag and handed it to the man. The suspect forced the two women to hide in the bathroom while he made his getaway out the back door.

The suspect is described as 6'1", medium build in his late 30's or early 40's.

Police believe he's responsible for two other armed robberies in Foley in December.
