A truck driver said he was robbed in the parking lot of the T/A Truck Stop, Highway 441, Commerce, last week, according to an incident report filed at the Banks County Sheriff's Office.
A 46-year-old male truck driver stated that he was sitting in the cab of his tractor-trailer when a white male knocked on the cab and told him that someone had hit his trailer in the back, Sheriff Charles Chapman said.
Chapman said the alleged victim stated he exited his cab and went to the rear of his trailer and was approached by three other white males.
“The complainant stated they asked him if he had any money and he said yes,” Chapman said. “The complainant then stated that the males said to him, ‘I bet you don’t have any money,’ and then the complainant pulled his wallet out to show them he did have money and he stated that the males grabbed his money out of the wallet and ran off,” Chapman said. The amount of money in the wallet was reported to be $1,000.
The complainant told the deputy that the males ran across the road and then left in a van with an out-of-state license plate on it.
