CAIRO — Police say a Dollar General employee was taking a deposit to a nearby bank when she was robbed in broad daylight.

According to a police incident report, a store employee was at her car in the parking lot of the Dollar General on 2nd Avenue SE when a tall black male wearing a white T-shirt approached the passenger side of her vehicle and grabbed a bank bag containing just shy of $9,700 in cash.

The complainant told police she attempted to spray the suspect with mace but wound up spraying herself instead.

Police are now searching for the suspect.
