From the Aberdeen Police Department:
The Aberdeen Police Department responded to reports of an armed robbery at the Dollar General Store in the Aberdeen Shopping Plaza around 2:37p.m. on Thursday, July 9, 2015. The robber reportedly entered the store and approached an employee at the register. He then pointed a silver handgun at the employee and demanded all the money from the register. When the employee was unable to open the cash drawer the robber fled the store.
Officers arrived in minutes to search the area and a police canine track was attempted but the suspect was not located. He is described as a white male in his late 50’s to early 60’s, around 6”0” tall and thin to medium build. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a black polo style shirt, khaki colored shorts, a black baseball hat with the Aberdeen Ironbirds logo and dark color “crocks” with no socks. Surveillance footage later revealed that he drove off in what is believed to be a silver or tan Ford Taurus 4-door. If anyone knows the identity of this male they are asked to contact Detective Tomlinson of the Aberdeen Police Department at 410-272-2121, ext. 135.
