The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery that took place at the Exxon gas station, located at 2311 Pionono Avenue, in south Macon. The incident took place shortly after 6:30a.m. Wednesday morning.

The female approached the front counter and told the clerk that the machines were acting up. She went back to the game room, the clerk followed shortly after.
