PINSON — A suspect in the Friday-morning robbery of the Dollar General store on Pinson Valley Parkway remains at large.
Birmingham Police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office are looking for a black male, 5-foot-6 and weighing about 165 pounds. He was wearing a black T-shirt, and had a red bandana over his face at the time of the robbery.
Police say the suspect waited until no customers were in the store, then went in and held up the cashier with a weapon, demanding money. He stuffed the money into a red backpack and then fled on foot; surveillance cameras show him going behind the store into a wooded area.
A K9 unit was called in to aid in the search.
If you have a lead in this case, call 911 or the Sheriff's Office at 325-5857, or your local police department.
