Police are looking for a man whose image was captured on CVS store security cameras and who is believed to have robbed the store in Ypsilanti Township Monday night.
Deputies from the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office were dispatched at 6:50 p.m. to the CVS, located at 1415 E. Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti Township, to investigate a reported armed robbery.
A cashier said a man walked into the store and approached the counter with a drink as if to pay for it, according to a release from the sheriff's office.
"The suspect then told the cashier to give him all the money and then displayed a handgun," the release said. "The suspect took the money and fled the area on foot."
The suspect is described as a black man in his mid-20s, 5 feet 9 or 10 inches tall. He was believed to weigh about 170 pounds and was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt.
