The Florence Police Department is looking for a suspect in a Sunday night robbery.

A man entered The Package Store, 1441 Huntsville Road, with a weapon about 9:20 p.m. Sunday and robbed the cashier after asking to make a purchase, said Sgt. Greg Cobb, department spokesman.

"That is so awful. I can't believe that. I hope they catch that person. That is awful. I come here a lot and I used to live on Huntsville Road and that is awful," said Jesse Warren, who goes to The Package Store and knows the cashiers that work there.

Right now, police are searching through surveillance video and trying to identify the suspect. Employees at the liquor store told WAAY 31 the cashier who was held at gunpoint is shaken up but doing okay.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, who weighs 180 to 200 pounds.

A description of the weapon has not been released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Michael Price at 256-760-6504 or text a tip to 274637 using keyword FPDTIP plus your message.
