Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying an unknown black male who robbed a Lehigh Dollar General late last night. 

Just after 10:30 p.m., the suspect walked into the Dollar General, located at 701 Gretchen Ave. S., and grabbed the cash drawer.  As the man was walking towards the front door, he grabbed a black pistol from his waistband, making it clear to the store employee that he was armed.  After seeing the gun, the employee halted his pursuit of the man, who fled the area in an unknown direction. 

The suspect was wearing a black hoodie, black pants and a black hat at the time of the robbery.  Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com.

Note:  Two surveillance stills of the suspect are attached to this release.  There is no video available at this time.
