Report: Suspect says ‘thank you’ to clerk after robbing store | Crime
The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is searching for a “well-mannered” armed robbery suspect who was polite enough to say "thank you" to a store clerk after stealing money from the register.
The report said around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday officers responded to an armed robbery call at the Sunoco gas station located on Piney Grove Road.
Upon arrival, deputies met with the store clerk who told officers that she turned away from the register to eat, and when she turned back around an unknown suspect opened the register and began taking money out, the report stated.
The clerk advised deputies that the unknown suspect said “thank you” as he ran out of the business, according to the report.
A witness inside the store told deputies she believes the suspect may have had a gun.
According to the report, the suspect is described as a young black male, 5’4”, 160lbs., last seen wearing a white mask and dark hoodie, with the word Michigan written on the front.
