The Southern Pit Stop on North Century Boulevard was held up Tuesday night.

Deputies say a black male robbed the convenience store at 9321 North Century Boulevard about 9:50 Tuesday night.  The lone male entered the store, pushed down a clerk and grabbed an undetermined amount of cash from the register. He did not display a weapon, according to deputies. The store clerks were not injured.

He was described as a black male, about 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was wearing blue pants, a blue bandana with eye holes cut into it, and possibly a blue shirt. One of the store clerks told deputies he had a clean appearance.

Escambia County deputies from Century, Molino and Cantonment  setup a perimeter for several blocks around the store.  The Flomaton Police Department also assisted in the ground search, while the Escambia Sheriff’s Department helicopter searched from the air.

The K-9 team from Century Correctional Institute tracked the suspect’s trail out of the store, around behind it, across North Century Boulevard (Highway 29) and down Jackson Street. The dogs lost the suspect’s scent to the northeast of the store a short time later.

The search for the suspect was called off about 11:00 Tuesday night.
