Police say the store was robbed just before 1:40 a.m. The male suspect demanded money and indicated that he had a weapon. The clerk told police a weapon was not seen. 

The canine unit conducted a search of the area after the suspect fled with cash, but he was not found.

The suspect is described as a white male, five feet five inches tall, blonde hair with a ponytail. He was wearing a red jacket and jeans. 

This is at least the fifth time this particular Needs has been robbed in 2015.
