by FOX19.com staff

MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Miami Township Police need your help to identify the person who robbed the Advance America located at 1067 State Route 28.

Witnesses reported that a man entered the store, displayed a handgun, approached the employees at the counter and demanded all of the money.  After getting the money from the cash drawers, he fled on foot in the general direction of Bypass 28 and Wolfpen Pleasant Hill Road.

 Miami Township Police Officers responded to the scene and were assisted by surrounding agencies including a K9 unit from the Clermont County Sheriff's Office. The K9 was able to track the suspect for a short distance to a location where it appeared that he got into an automobile and left the scene.

 "We were able to retrieve some video and still photographs of the suspect and are hopeful that someone will be able to identify him," said Miami Township Police Chief Steven Bailey. "Someone may recognize the suspect's features and clothing, and if so, we're asking that they call us with that information."

The suspect is described a black male in his mid 20's to late 30's, 5-foot-5, weighing about 160 pounds.  He was wearing a black leather jacket, black pants, white gym shoes, black beanie cap and a scarf covering his lower face.  He also may have left the area in a dark blue GMS sport utility vehicle.

Miami Township Police are encouraging anyone with information about this crime to contact them at 248-3721 or call Crime-Stoppers at 352-3040.
