From the Smyrna Police Department
On July 30th, around 8:50 pm, an armed robbery occurred at Hot Spot Tanning (307 W. Sam Ridley Pkwy) in Smyrna. A male subject came into the business and told the employee behind the counter that he suggests she empty the cash drawer and he told her he did have a pistol and would use it. The suspect handed the employee a brown, plastic grocery bag and told her to place the money in it. After collecting the bag of money from the employee, the suspect exited the store. The suspect may have left the scene in a white, Ford Ranger with the license plate removed. The suspect vehicle had a note in the rear window of the truck that stated "lost tag."
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5' 10" tall, weighing approximately 180 lbs with brown hair. He was wearing glasses, a blue, polo-style shirt with blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a baseball style hat with a dark colored top and a red brim.
