12/27 FBI Looking Into Jackson Convenience Store Robbery

On Tuesday, we reported the story of an armed robbery on Monday morning at the Village Mart in Jackson. As of Thursday, the Jackson Police Department reported that they are still looking for the person who robbed a clerk with a handgun.  According to Jackson Police Chief Jed Dolnick the suspect hasn’t been caught, but they’ve been in touch with the FBI. He said another agency had a bank robbery and surveillance videos from that robbery and the Village Mart robbery are being compared, but they are not sure if it’s the same person.  Chief Dolnick would not say where the other robbery occurred.  The Jackson police department initially reported that at about 9:20 a.m. Monday morning a clerk at the mini mart reported a man displaying a handgun, demanded money and fled on foot. A police officer followed tracks in the snow after a witness reported the man went south, but the tracks ended in the street about a block away. The initial investigation revealed the suspect was inside the nearby Associated Bank before the robbery, but left without arousing suspicion. The man is described as a light-skinned African-American or Hispanic man in his late 20s, about 5 feet 10 inches with a mustache or goatee. He was wearing a tan coat, black sweatpants with a red stripe down each leg and a black hood pulled over a tan hat. A surveillance picture of him is on our website under the local news tab. Jackson  Police and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office are asking anyone who may know the identity of the suspect to call either the Jackson Police Department nonemergency number at 677-4949 or the Washington County Sheriff’s Department tip line number 800- 232-0594.
