The Madison County Sheriff's Department is asking the public for help identifying an armed robber. Investigators say the masked man entered the Casey's General Store on Godfrey Road a few minutes before 10pm Thursday night and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. He is described as a black male between 20 and 40 years old, 6'1" to 6'2" tall, between 180 and 210 pounds with an athletic build.
In addition to the ski mask, he was wearing a gray suit, blue dress shirt, a dark scarf, and black and white tennis shoes. Captain Mike Dixon says he entered the business and made a comment to the clerks about the weather.
The suspect was captured on surveillance video, and those pictures are posted here. Anyone with information on the suspect or the robbery should call the Sheriff's Department at 692-0871, or the anonymous tip line at 296-3000.
