The Greenville Police Department is asking community members for information related to a Saturday morning business robbery.

A Central Alabama Crimestoppers’ alert described the suspect as wearing a black hoodie, black hat with green bill, black pants and white shoes.

Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn said the individual, a black male, entered the store as if he were a customer.

“He acted as though he was conducting business at this location and then showed the employee a gun and demanded money,” Lovvorn said. “He then took a small amount of currency from the register and fled on foot.”

According to Crimestoppers, the store clerk handed over available cash before the man stepped behind the counter and attempted to access the safe. The clerk does not know the combination, and the suspect left the business, walking away on foot.

“Investigators were able to locate and take into possession certain items of evidence from the scene,” Lovvorn said. “This will be submitted to the lab to help identify the suspect.”

Greenville police have partnered with Crimestoppers to gain tips about the incident. A cash reward is offered for information leading to identification of the suspect.
