A suspect in a late night armed robbery of a South Kitsap convenience store on Jan. 26 remains at large, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Scott Wilson, public information officer, reported that the incident occurred about 10:20 p.m. at the Port Orchard Gas Mart, at the intersection of SE Mile Hill Drive and Warner Avenue SE.
He said the male suspect entered the store and demanded the store clerk give him money from the cash register.
The suspect displayed a black-colored handgun through the front pouch of his sweatshirt and left the store with an undetermined amount of money in a brown paper bag.
After inspecting the area with a K-9 unit, deputies determined the suspect most likely left the location in a vehicle.
Persons with any information about this robbery are asked to contact sheriff’s detectives at 360-337-7111, or Kitsap County Central Communications (911 dispatch) at 360-308-5400.
