The case of a well-dressed robber in Godfrey last week contiunues. Last Thursday night, an armed and masked man entered the Casey's General Store on Godfrey Road and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. In addition to the ski mask, he was wearing a grey suit, blue dress shirt, a dark scarf, black and white tennis shoes.
Captain Mike Dixon says very little in the way of leads came in over the weekend, but there was one that suggested the thief may have been from St. Louis.
He says law enforcement has not seen an increase in crime as 255 has opened, which was something some in the local community were afraid may happen with the growth that is expected on that end of town. The robber 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. 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.
