WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) -

Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly robbed a convenience store on Thursday evening, Oct. 17.

The suspect reportedly acted as though he was purchasing a drink. When the cash register opened, he leaned over the counter, took an undetermined amount of money and fled the store.

He then drove east on Hwy 18 in a black 2010 Nissan Versa displaying a Georgia tag.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'11", approximately 150 lbs., mid 40s, with black hair, receding hair line, brown eyes, and light skin. He was wearing a white shirt with a brown design on the left upper portion of the shirt, black pants and white tennis shoes.
