Suspect Sought in Club Robbery

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department is investigating an apparent armed robbery Wednesday night at a night club.

The cashier at the Anchor Inn on Hillview Drive near Daleville said a man came in around midnight, closing time, and displayed a pocketknife and demanded money out of the register. There were no customers inside the club.

"The clerk was able to give him the money without incident," said Sheriff Billy Sollie. "And he was seen running south on Hillview, back towards the Meridian area."

The suspect is described as a white male, 5'9" to 5'10", with short blonde hair, blue-green eyes and a tropical tattoo on the back of his neck.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.
