Albany- Police say between 2:00 and 2:30AM, a masked man walked into the Phillips 66 Oasis gas station on North Slappey and robbed the clerk.

According to witnesses this is not the first time the store has been robbed and those that work and shop there says something needs to be done.  One customer, Edward Alexander says, " It's real bad we work down the road right here and it's been three or fpir times that this has happened."

It's happened again and police have surveillance tape to prove it.  In the video you can see clearly a masked man taking money out of the cash register.  The cashier who is visibly shaken then calls police, who say they now need your help. 

APD Detective Edward Heath says, "We are looking for a black male, 6' to 6'1, about 210 pounds wearing all black, and a mask." The manager of the store who did not want to be identified says, "Their gas station never carries large sums of money and doesn't understand why anyone would do something like this."

As for people who frequently shop there, one customer said they need better security, "This place gets robbed so many times she needs to get security that what she needs to do."

In the meantime, police are following leads and hope to have arrest in the case. Employees at the store hope that this won't happen again.

The store manager says that she believes the person is familiar with the store and seemed to know where things were, she hopes that tips will lead to the arrest of whoever is responsible.

And if you have any information regarding the robbery police are asking that you contact them directly.
