Police are investigating a Wednesday night robbery at the Jiffy Store in Halifax in which a male suspect, possibly armed, made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robbery took place shortly after 7 p.m. at the Jiffy Store at 1006 L.P. Bailey Memorial Highway. Sgt. J. Florence, Officer M. Bowen and Officer S. Roher with the Town of Halifax Police Department responded. Upon their arrival, Sgt. Florence began speaking with a cashier, who described a male assailant who walked inside the store and demanded money.

The clerk advised that the suspect had what appeared to be a gun in his right jacket pocket. She stated she never did see a weapon, although the man motioned as he had one.

In-store video footage showed the subject is of medium build, wearing a black cargo jacket, with a solid grey hoodie and hood underneath pulled over his face, and wood camo pants and gloves, with white sneakers.

He was observed entering the front door of the store, from the east side of the building. He exited the front door and left walking towards the east side of the building, in the direction of Bethel Road and the bridge.

Officers on scene advised 911 Dispatch to issue a BOLO (be on the lookout) for the description of the subject to all agencies.

The Town of Halifax officers were assisted by Lt. C. Yeatts with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at the scene. He made contact with Deputy F. Cross who is the K-9 handler with a bloodhound and asked for his assistance to help attempt to track the suspect. The canine tracking team picked up a trail leading to King's Bridge Landing. No further information is available at this time.

Police continue to review security video footage as the investigation of the robbery continues.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Halifax County Crimestoppers or the Town of Halifax Police Department with any tips pertaining to the incident and suspect. The Crimestoppers number is 434-476-8445.
