Deputies are searching for a suspect involved in an armed robbery at a Quik Mart last week.
It happened just after 2:30 a.m. at the store near Roger Road and Fairview Avenue. According to deputies, the store clerk was outside when the suspect walked up and forced him back inside the Quik Mart.
The suspect said he had a weapon and demanded the clerk empty the cash register and give him cigarettes from behind the counter. The suspect was last seen heading east and north from the store.
He is described as 5'9" with a thin build.
He was wearing a grey or green shirt, faded jeans, white tennis shoes and a red baseball hat. The hat was red with "Arizona" written in white. There was also a brown leather oval patch on it with the letters "AZ". Letters were also on the side of the brim.
Anyone who has information about this case or information about the suspect is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
