Police need your help solving a robbery, and you could get paid

A man robbed a Wichita store by using a note and threatening the clerk, according to Crime Stoppers of Wichita-Sedgwick County.

It happened on April 9 just before 9 p.m. at Johnson's General Store, 5400 N. Meridian.

The man — who hasn't been identified — told the employee that no one would get hurt if he got the money, Crime Stoppers said. After the clerk gave him cash, the man took it and his note then left.

The employee never saw a weapon. The robber wore black pants, a green and yellow button-down shirt, a gray jacket, a black beanie and black gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111 or online. Tips leading to convictions are eligible for a reward up to $2,500.
