Just after 1:00 pm last Wednesday, a man walked in to the Airbase Hill Sprint Mart and asked for “change for a dollar”. When the cashier opened the drawer to get some quarters, the man leaned over and shoved both his hands into the drawer, trying to grab cash. The bandit fled the store, getting away with an undisclosed amount of money.
Witnesses say the man jumped into a red Ford F-150 with a chrome tool box and chrome trim along the bottom of the truck. The man was described as a tall white male, with a receeding hair line and a goatee. He was wearing a gray plaid flannel jacket over a red t-shirt. The unidentified robber fled north on Hwy 45 before officers arrived on scene, but the store’s surveillance cameras got very good shots of the thief and his truck.
