Thief gets away with cash and cigarettes in Henrico


Henrico Police are investigating an armed robbery in the West End.

Officers say at approximately 10:30 a.m. Sunday, a man entered a store in the 8900 block of W. Broad Street and selected a drink from the cooler. The subject walked up to the counter, greeted by the clerk, then pulled a black hand gun.  They say he demanded the clerk to remove money from the register and Newport 100's from the shelf behind the counter.

Police say the thief then ordered the clerk to walk to the back stock room before fleeing on foot toward the Gold's Gym area.

The suspect is described as a black male, in his early 40's, 5'10"-6' tall, 170-180 pounds, wearing a gray hooded jacket with blue stripes down the sleeves, gray knit cap, and dark colored pants.

If you can help solve this case call Henrico Police at (804) 501-5000.
