Deputies remain on the hunt for a man who they said robbed a convenience store at gunpoint last month in Lincolnton.
The store clerk at Rickyâ€™s Food Mart on Gastonia Highway described the suspect as a 5-foot-10-inch white male with blue eyes and a slim build, authorities said.
According to the Sheriffâ€™s Office, the suspect entered the store just before 10 p.m. on Sept. 25 and demanded that the clerk hand over the storeâ€™s money.
The employee also told deputies that the man was wearing a blue hoodie and tapped a gun on the counter.
The man fled the store with an unknown amount of cash, deputies said, and it is not clear whether or not he escaped the property in a vehicle or on foot.
Anyone with information on the suspectâ€™s whereabouts or a possible suspicious person or vehicle in the area that night is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriffâ€™s Office at 704-732-9050 or Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909.
Tips may remain anonymous, and any tip leading to an arrest could receive a reward of up to $1,000.
