Ardmore police continue to search for the man who robbed a West Broadway Street business late Friday afternoon.


Check’n Go employees told officers a white man, wearing a gray sweatshirt and a black stocking cap, came into the business and handed a note to an employee. The demand for cash note reportedly contained a vague threat the robber would harm the employee if his instructions were not carried out. However, the man did not show any type of weapon nor did he apparently give any indications he was armed.


The employee carried out the note’s instructions.


Cash in hand, the man fled the area in what witnesses reported was an older model blue Chevrolet, possibly a Cavalier.


The robber was originally reported to be between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall. However Saturday, Sgt. Kevin Norris, Ardmore Police Department Patrol Division, said new information indicated the holdup man might stand around the 6 foot mark. He is described as having a slender build.


Saturday investigators were reviewing a video tape, retrieved from the firm’s security cameras which recorded the holdup, in an effort to identify the robber.


Anyone with information about the circumstances surrounding the robbery or those who believe they might be able to identify the suspect are urged to call police headquarters at (580) 223-1212.
