The Jackson Police Department is searching for the suspect responsible for robbing a clerk at the Village Mart on Monday morning. According to the report from Jackson police Chief Jed Dolnick, the suspect entered the Village Mart around 9:19 a.m., displayed a handgun and demanded money before fleeing the scene on foot. The first officer arrived on the scene within one minute. Another officer followed foot tracks in the snow after a witness reported that the man went south. The foot tracks ended in the street about a block away. Further investigation revealed that the suspect had been inside a nearby Associated Bank before the robbery, but left without arousing suspicion. The suspect was described as a light skinned African-American or Hispanic man in his late 20s, approximately 5’10”, with a mustache or goatee. He was wearing a tan coat, black sweatpants with a red stripe down each leg, and a black hoodie pulled over a tan hat. Officers from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department and the Slinger Police Department helped secure the scene and search for the suspect. A surveillance photo of the suspect appears on our website under the local news tab.
