Opelika investigators have released a surveillance image of a man wanted for the armed robbery of a convenience store.

Around 1:45 a.m. ct Thursday, a male entered the Kangaroo, located at 3902 Pepperell Parkway, and demanded cash from the clerk behind the register. The cashier partially opened the register and the individual jumped over the counter and opened the cash drawer, authorities say. He took an undetermined amount of money. The subject then grabbed three packs of cigarettes from a storage rack and fled the store on foot.

The cashier, who was not hurt, told police the suspect was holding a steak knife. The suspect was described as a black male about 30 years old wearing a black jacket, white tank top, a red hat, and a black wig.

Anyone with information about this crime is encouraged to contact the Opelika Police Department Investigative Services Division at (334) 705-5220 or the Secret Witness Hotline at (334) 745-8665.
