OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Overland Park police are searching for a robbery suspect who held up a clerk at a QuikTrip store early Monday morning.
Police say the robbery occurred at the QuikTrip near I-435 and Roe just after 2 a.m.
The clerk was the only person in the store when the robbery happened.
Police say the suspect backed his vehicle into a parking spot and walked into the store armed with a rifle. The suspect proceeded to take an unknown amount of cash and a carton of Newport cigarettes.
The suspect is described as a black male who stands approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie with a scarf of bandanna over his face. He was last seen driving southbound on Roe Ave in a dark colored Chevrolet HHR.
According to police, surveillance video hasn't been much help because the suspect had his face covered and vehicle did not have a license plate.
Investigators haven't connected this latest robbery to several others over the last month.
