Colorado Springs are on the lookout for an armed man who robbed the Home Depot store on North Academy Boulevard Saturday night.
The unidentified robber stood in line at a register and asked a cashier to scan a lantern, then pulled a handgun and pointed it at the employee, police said. The man ordered the attendant to take the money tray from the till and put it in a duffel bag in the shopping cart.
Police said the robber got away with an undisclosed amount of money and they did not know if he had fled on foot or in a car, or which direction he may have gone.
There were no reports of how many people were in the store at the time of the robbery, shortly before 8 p.m., but no one was injured.
Anyone with information can call police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-7867.
