Valdosta Police are looking for the man who burst into the MS Food Mart Saturday night, and pointed a small handgun at the store clerk.
The armed robber demanded money and cigarettes, and the frightened clerk gave him the money in the register, and cigarettes.
He ran out of the store, located at 1000 East Park Avenue, and headed East, running. The store clerk was not injured.
K-9 Units, VPD Detectives and Crime Scene personnel responded to the scene, where the dogs tracked a scent for a short distance, and then lost it.
The surveillance camera got good images of the crook as he pulled his shirt over his head, but failed to conceal his face.
Anyone having any information regarding this incident is asked to contact VPD Detective Clark at 229-293-3125 or the crime tip line 229-293-3091 or Detective main line 229-293-3145.
