At approximately 3:55 a.m., sheriff's deputies responded to the Mobil gas station, located at 5600 Bartel Road,

to be approximately 6' tall and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with white "North Atlantic"
lettering, grey colored baggie jeans and two-toned low top sneakers. During the robbery, the suspect was also
wearing a blue bandana to cover his face.
Sheriff's Deputies searched the area for the suspect, interviewed witnesses and believe the suspect many have
gotten into a vehicle. No one was injured during the incident. Detectives assigned to the Sheriff's Office
Criminal Investigations Division will continue to investigate the incident and encourage anyone with
information should contact Sheriff's Detectives by calling 435-3081.
