The Bluffton Police Department is investigating an armed robbery at about 4 a.m. Monday of the Parker's gas station on Jennifer Court.
One suspect armed with a sawed-off shotgun entered into the store and robbed the lone clerk of money in the cash register, according to a news release. The suspect then left the store on foot toward Buck Island Road.
Bluffton Police, assisted by the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, surrounded the area and sent the Sheriff's Office K9 unit to track the suspect, the release said. Authorities are searching for a black male, about 5-foot-2, last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black gloves and a black T-shirt that covered part of his face.
Anyone with information about the robbery or suspects or if they recognize the described clothing are asked to call Detective Michelle Mayers of Bluffton Police's Investigations Division at 843-706-4554.
