Anyone with information regarding Wednesday's robbery at the east Kum & Go in Craig is to call the Craig Police Department at 826-2360, or CrimeStoppers at 824-3535.

— The Craig Police Department is investigating a Wednesday morning robbery in which an unknown male pointed a handgun at a convenience store clerk and made off with cash.

“Hopefully, in the near future, we’ll be able to develop some leads and find out who did this,” Capt. Jerry DeLong said.

Police responded to an armed robbery call about 1:50 a.m. at the store, 700 W. Victory Way. The suspect is an unknown male, who was dressed in black clothing and wore a “ski type of mask that covered (his) face,” police reported.

“After staying in the store for a few minutes, the person, who was displaying a handgun, approached the clerk demanding all of the money from the cash register,” police reported in a press release issued Wednesday. “The person then left the store with an undetermined amount of cash.”

No gunshots were fired and the store clerk was not harmed, police said.

DeLong said he thinks the Wednesday incident is the first time this year a local convenience store has been robbed by an armed suspect.

The investigation into the robbery is continuing, and police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect.

“If anyone saw someone matching this description around the area, please contact the Craig Police Department,” officers requested.
