      The Cordele Police Department needs your help locating an armed robber.

      Sergeant Jeremy Taylor says just after 11 p.m. Sunday, a man held a Walmart employee at gunpoint.

      Sgt. Taylor says the man followed an employee into the store's business office and stole several bank bags full of cash.

      He posed as a shopper with a cart for a while before making any moves.

      Surveillance video shows the man running away and a Walmart employee chasing after him.

      "He was chased by a male employee up until the point he pointed a gun at the male employee in the parking lot," Taylor said. "He was then picked up in a dark colored, mid-sized sedan."

      If you recognize the man in the pictures, you're asked to call Cordele police.
