Staff Report

Tallassee police are investigating an Aug. 27 burglary at the Roadrunner Convenience Store on Central Boulevard in East Tallassee. The offender entered the store after hours.

The front glass door was shattered and an unspecified amount of merchandise was taken. The suspect was wearing what appears to be an orange hooded sweatshirt, woodland camo pants, a black backpack and possibly camo colored Croc shoes. The most notable item is a dark-colored hat (dark blue or black) with a white Nike check and a brass fishhook on the right side of the bill. 

Investigators are hopeful that someone will be able to identify the subject through released photos.
