Armed Robbery at Richland Convenience Store

Armed Robbery Suspect

Suspect:  White male, 23-27 years of age, 5-10 to 5-11, dark hair and mustache

Last seen wearing: White shirt, black cap, black jean shorts, black shoes, white socks, black and white checkered flannel jacket
Vehicle:  Dark colored sedan
Weapon:  Dark, semi-automatic handgun

On June 16, 2013 at approximately 9:25 PM officers were dispatched to an armed robbery that had just occurred at the Lucky Foodmart, 22 Goethals Drive. 

The suspect entered the store and began looking at several items near the front counter.  He then walked to the back of the store and commented to a store employee that he “had the munchies”.  The employee said that he must have smoked marijuana and the suspect replied that it was legal here.  He waited for another customer to leave and then approached the counter.
The suspect pulled a pistol from his waist band and told the employee to give him the money.  The pistol was described as a semi-automatic hand gun, dark with silver markings.
After being given an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled the store on foot.  The employee reported that a car left north bound on Goethals Drive. 

Another witness in the area reported seeing a red Chevrolet north of the store at about the same time as the robbery.  The witness thought that the model may have been Beretta or Cavalier. 

Photos of the suspect are above.  Anyone with information is asked to call the non-emergency number for Southeast Communications, 628-0333.
