Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s deputies are on the lookout for an armed robber after the Circle K convenience store in Bracey was held up overnight.
According to Capt. Andy Ezell, a white man wearing blue jeans, black Nike shoes, grey Nike stocking cap, thick black gloves, a white bandana covering his face, and a greyish color work jacket walked into the Circle K store at 3384 Highway 903 shortly before 11:00 p.m. He brandished a long gun and demanded cash. Ezell said at this time deputies are trying to determine if the gun was a rifle or a shotgun.
No shots were fired during the confrontation.
The robbery suspect fled on foot in the direction of I-85, with an undisclosed amount of cash and coins.
Despite a search involving the Virginia State Police and Mecklenburg Sheriff’s K-9 unit, the man was not found, but the search is continuing.
Ezell said the suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mecklenburg County Crime Solvers at 1-877-676-8477 or the Sheriff’s Office at 434-738-6171 or toll-free at 1-888-624-2207.
