ODESSA - He harassed a clerk and took off with cash from the cash register and now Odessa Crime Stoppers needs help tracking him down.

"I think someone will recognize the jacket, and with the little clip we have of his face, be able to tell us who he is," Susan Rogers with Odessa Crime Stoppers, said.

The man in question walked in to the Kent Kwik off Grandview and 11th Street in Odessa.

"The suspect comes in asks the clerk about the restroom. We don't know if he was scoping it out or waiting for people to leave," Rogers said.

In the surveillance video, you can see the man walk to the bathroom, come around the corner and then he went to find the clerk.

"He goes into an office that the clerk is sitting in, forces her to the cash register," she said.

The clerk hesitated at first but eventually went to the register and handed over the cash.

Susan Rogers with Odessa Crime Stoppers said just because the guy hasn't been caught yet, doesn't mean police have forgotten about him.

"Just because you did it several months ago, doesn't mean you've gotten away with it. We've got the video, we're going to make the time to get all out there," she said.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Odessa Crime Stoppers at 333-TIPS.
