OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) -

The Opelika Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying an armed robbery suspect. 

On Tuesday, Feb. 7 at approximately 8:20 p.m. CDT, the suspect entered the Dollar General on Pepperell Parkway and made a small purchase.

As the cashier opened the register to provide change, the suspect pulled out a firearm and demanded money. The suspect then left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a black male and was last seen wearing a black toboggan, a dark brown jacket, black pants and a pair of brown work boots. 

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the Opelika Police Department’s Investigative Services Division at (334) 705-5220. 

You may also call their Secret Witness Hotline at (334) 745-8665, and you may remain anonymous if you choose.
