Alton Police are hoping surveillance video will help lead them to the man that tried to hold up two employees at the Casey's Store on Washington Avenue Saturday night. Alton Police Chief of Detectives, Lieutenant Scott Golike, says the incident happened after the two employees had closed the store around 11pm.

Golike comment

A canine unit was brought in, and the dog tracked the scent of what is believed to be the suspect in a southeast direction from the store for several of blocks before losing the scent. If you have any information, you are asked to call the Alton Police Department at 463-3505.
