ATHENS, AL (WAFF) – A man wearing a ski mask and armed with a handgun robbed a Dollar General store on Highway 72 West in Limestone County late Thursday night.
According to Limestone County Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt, the masked man walked into the store about 9:50 and demanded money from the cash register.
