TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - Pima County Sheriff's deputies are seeking a robber who got away with $50 and a carton of cigarettes.

Surveillance video shows he jumped the counter when he didn't think the clerk was complying with his demands quickly enough.

It happened early Monday morning at the Circle K at 4605 W. Valencia.  The clerk says a man came into the store and asked to purchase a carton of cigarettes.  That's when the man produced a handgun and demanded not only the cigarettes but cash as well.  The store clerk handed the suspect $50. The robber then grabbed the cigarettes and left the store.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male between 25 and 30 years old, approximately 5'8" to 5'10" tall with a thin build, a scruffy beard and sideburns.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or who has any other information on this case is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
