Police in Olive Branch Wednesday continued to seek a suspect in an armed robbery at the Murphy USA gas station and convenience store.

A black male entered the store at the corner of Goodman and Davidson roads about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. Police reported the man entered with a silver handgun and demanded money from the cash register.

The suspect also walked around and snatched the cash register from the counter, then left the store and was last seen leaving the parking lot in a silver vehicle and driving north on Davidson Road.

The robber was described as being about six-feet in height and from surveillance video appeared to be wearing a toboggan cap, black jacket and black pants. The man also covered his face with a red bandana during the robbery.

Anyone with information regarding the Tuesday morning robbery is asked to contact the Olive Branch Police Department at 662-895-4111 or through the department’s social media channels.
