Columbus police are searching for a suspect in a weekend robbery at Tractor Supply in Columbus.
Authorities say the robbery took place at about 9:30 p.m. after the Highway 45 North store had already closed Saturday, according to a Columbus Police Department press release. The victim, an employee of the store, was leaving when the suspect confronted them and had them go back into the store. The victim was uninjured, and the press release did not indicate what, if anything, the suspect stole.
The press release described the suspect as a black male approximately 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing about 240 pounds. He was seen on foot and not with a vehicle. Investigators believe he may be a former Tractor Supply employee, due to "certain actions" he took during the robbery.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
