The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man they say robbed a north Tulsa Dollar General store with an apparent pistol.

The robbery took place on Feb. 24 at 65th and North Peoria. Investigators released information.

“A man came into the store and tried to buy groceries,” TCSO said in a statement. “When his credit card didn’t work, he told the cashier he was going to his car to get money.”

The man then reportedly returned with a note he handed the employee, which demanded cash, TCSO said.

“He flashed what appeared to be pistol to the store employees,” the statement says. ‘They complied and the man walked out of the store with the grocery items and money from the cash register.”

The suspected robber is described as a black male, approximately about 5-foot-10 to 6-foot tall. He was wearing a black hoodie and black pants with paint spots at the time of the alleged robbery, and he also had a brace on his right wrist.

If you recognize the person in the surveillance image above, please call TCSO at 918-596-5601 or Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
