The Fairhope Police Department is seeking leads about an armed robbery that occurred after midnight on Thursday at the CEFCO convenience store located at 18983 Greeno Rd.
At approximately 12:30 a.m., police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the store. A male employee told police a suspect, described as a 6-foot-tall light-skinned black male entered the store and pointed a handgun at him. The suspect was wearing all black clothing, including a black cap and a black mask covering his face.
The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and fled the area on foot. No injuries were reported, according to Fairhope Police Sgt. Craig Sawyer.
Officers used a police dog to track the suspect, but the track ended at a point where officers believe the suspect entered a vehicle.
During the track, officers recovered clothing believed to have been discarded by the fleeing suspect. One distinguishing item was a white bracelet with the phrases “SOUTHISIDE 4-EVA” and “FOREVER YOUNG” written on it.
Investigators hope the unique spelling of the phrase “SOUTHISIDE 4-EVA” will be recognizable.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Fairhope Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 251-928-2385.
