Columbia Police are hoping the public can help identify a suspect in an armed robbery Nov. 3 at the Family Dollar at 2800 Leesburg Road.
The man is described as a black male in his mid-20s, around 6 feet tall and weighing 225 to 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black short-sleeve shirt, dark blue jeans (with some type of design on the front and rear pockets), black sneakers, black skull cap and a red bandanna.
As the armed man entered the business just before noon, he pulled the red bandanna over his face and wanted to know where everybody was in the store. The robber then ordered the clerk to give him cash from the register.
He fled in a white, early 2000 model Chevrolet Impala, with dark tinted windows and a dark tinted license plate cover, that may have been driven by a black female. The Impala has a missing right front hubcap and the vehicle was making a knocking noise possibly from some type of mechanical problem.
Never miss a local story.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) CRIME-SC.
