Police seeking identity of armed robbery suspect

St. Joseph County Police are investigating an armed robbery at the Country Cupboard convenience store on Quince and State Road 2.

Imagine getting gas, maybe stopping inside for a snack and all of a sudden seeing a hooded man walk in with what looks like a sawed-off shot gun.

That's exactly what happened on Wednesday night at the Country Cupboard convenience store.

St. Joseph County police describe the suspect carrying the large automatic gun as a light-skinned black man in his late teens to early 20's.

Herman Garcia, a driver who frequents the Country Cupboard, says he's feeling lucky he didn't decide to fill up that night.

“That would be pretty shocking to all of a sudden walk in to a business getting robbed,” says Garcia.

Police say the suspect got away with an unknown amount of cash taken from both registers.

If you know anything about this robbery, the St. Joseph County police are asking you to call Detective David Wagernowski at 574-235-9569 or 574-344-1670.
