VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police are still trying to find the suspect who robbed South Georgia Pecan Gift Shop Tuesday morning.

Lt. Aaron Kirk, with the Valdosta Police Department, said the suspect walked in to the store around 10 a.m. on Tuesday and stole money from the cash register.

"Tuesday morning, a little after 10 a.m., an African American male entered the gift shop there at South Georgia Pecan and advised the clerk working there that he wanted the money," said Kirk.

No gun was used, and the suspect fled the scene on a bicycle.

"Officers arrived and searched the area, but they were unable to locate him," explained Kirk. "[The suspect] is approximately  six foot four in height, medium to heavy build, probably 240-250 pounds," Kirk added.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Valdosta Police Department at 229-242-2606.
