ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. -

Elizabethton Police are looking for the person who robbed a local convenience store Friday morning.

Police say the man pictured above walked into the Roadrunner Market on Milligan Highway just before 6:30 Friday morning. He demanded cash from the clerk.

Police say he kept his hands hidden but threatened that he had a weapon.

He's described as white male, around 6 feet with a medium build. He was wearing blue jeans, running shoes, and a grey hooded sweatshirt. His face was covered with a t-shirt.

"This is one of those times where it's not uncommon for law enforcement in general to see an increase in crimes that involve robberies and things like that," adds Captain Joy Markland with the Elizabethton Police Department.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Elizabethton Police Department at (423) 542-4141.
