Pittsfield Township police have released photos of the suspect in Monday's early morning armed robbery of the Sunoco gas station.

About 12:04 a.m., a man walked into the station's convenience store in the 4000 block of Washtenaw Avenue, pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the cash register, police said.

The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was described as black, 6 feet tall and thin. He was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt "with skulls on it," a mask and dark jeans. Police said he was armed with a blue steel revolver.

After receiving money from the clerk, the suspect fled the area on foot. An Ann Arbor K-9 tracked the suspect which led to a nearby hotel but the suspect was not located. The clerk was not injured during this incident, police said.

I cant see his face... You know high end video cameras are so small and inexpensive. I think stores need to be installing them in many different locations so they can really get a good view of "customers" hope they find the guy....

Hahaha those pictures are not even worth showing around. Look out for a Guy who may be AA and is of average build and height. Got it.

what makes RJA believe that the Pittsfield Police will catch this person---there has not been any arrest in the other armed robberies or break-ins----the crooks know that they there is a good chance they won't be caught --has the burger king robber been caught yet--you know the burger king --just across the street from the Pittsfield Township Offices and the Pittsfield Township Police Department ----

I have a closet full of perfectly good hoodies that I'm reluctant to wear - to the bank or to the convenience store or just about anywhere. It's a shame. Hoodies are comfortable and warm but I fear that tellers or clerks will hit the silent alarm button every time he or she sees a hoodie. Maybe it's time we banned hoodies?

If you're not doing anything suspicious why would they hit the silent alarm just because you're wearing a hoodie? That makes no sense I'm sorry lol

I think it's time we banned criminals.

This suspect was certainly dressed in layers. (it certainly wouldn't take long to shed some) Hopefully he will be caught soon. Pittsfield Police are good and will close in on him.
