5’ 5” in height and slim. He was wearing blue jeans, green
camouflage jacket, black gloves, a black ski mask and white colored sneakers.

“Although the cashier was not physically injured in this incident, she was left
shaken by the ordeal,” said Sergeant Richard Scott. “If
you recognise the man or you were in the area at the time of the robbery we want
to hear from you. We believe that the suspect fled the area on foot, but might
have entered a vehicle at some stage.

“The fact that we can issue images from the CCTV cameras
should send a clear message both to would-be robbers and to businesses about the
value of properly sited cameras. We would ask business owners to look at their
systems and make sure that the images and footage are of good quality and that
the cameras are in the right place to provide maximum coverage.”

Anyone with information is asked to call George Town police
station on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
