Armed Robbery on Prater Way

Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for the woman who robbed a tobacco store on Prater way in the early afternoon on Sunday, August 25th.

According to Sparks Police, officers were called to the King of Tobacco store at 562 E. Prater way just after 1:30, on a report of an armed robbery.

Witnesses say a woman entered the store, and picked out a few items, then gave them to the clerk as if she was going to buy them. When asked for money, however, she drew a small black firearm and pointed it at the clerk. She then took the items and ran from the store.

The suspect is described as a white woman with brown hair between 35 and 40 years old, roughly 5'6" tall and weighing between 180-200 pounds.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to report it to Secret Witness at 322-4900.
