Police Looking For Robbery Suspect With Skin Discoloration

January 3, 2014

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying an armed bandit that held up a Flomaton title and payday loan business on New Year’s Eve.

About 5:15 p.m.,  an armed bandit walked into the Cash 2 Go store on Sidney Manning Boulevard (Highway 29) in Flomaton and demanded cash at gunpoint from a store employee, according to Flomaton Police Chief Brian Davis.

Thursday, Davis said the suspect is believed to be a black male who was wearing ski mask with eye and mouth openings.

“The suspect appeared to have some type of discoloration around his mouth area, possibly from some type of previous burn, injury or birth mark,” Davis said. “The suspect could have more of these on his face and body but due to the ski mask and jacket we were unable to tell.”

After the robbery, the suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction.  An unsuccessful manhunt followed with officers from the Flomaton Police Department, Escambia County (AL) Sheriff’s Office and Escambia County (FL) Sheriff’s Office and K-9 units from Fountain Prison in Atmore, the Escambia County (FL)  Road Prison and Century Correctional Institution.

There were no injuries reported.

Anyone with information should contact the Flomaton Police Department at (251) 296-5811 or their local law enforcement agency.
