Shortly before 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, an employee of the Quik Cash business in the 400 block of North Oliver was robbed. The suspect was wearing a black ski mask and was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun. He is described as a black male, possibly in his late 20s and 5-foot-9 with a thin build. He was wearing dark khaki pants and a long black coat.
The suspect gained access to the business by cutting a hole in the roof, most likely while it was closed, then entered the employee area through the ceiling after the business opened for the day.
The suspect used zip ties to bind the victim, stole cash, then fled out the back door. He was last seen running south on Dellrose Street.

A blue late-model Ford Mustang GT was seen in the area on Dellrose at the time of the robbery. Crime Stoppers is asking for any information regarding the owner or occupants of this vehicle.
