Warr Acres police are looking for a man they say is responsible for an armed robbery at a liquor store Monday night.

Thanks to cameras inside the liquor store, Warr Acres Police got a good look at the man behind the crime.

The suspect walked in to the Discount Liquor store on MacArthur Blvd. just before 9 p.m. Monday. Police said he picked up a bottle of flavored vodka and proceeded to checkout. First he pulled cash to pay, and while the clerk made change, he pulled out a gun. The suspect then took off on foot and the clerk called for help.

Police described the suspect as a black male, about 6 feet tall, wearing a blue hoodie with a Cox logo on it. Warr Acres Police believe the armed robbery was a planned attack.

“He looks pretty calm on the surveillance video. It wouldn't surprise me if he's done this before,” saidWarr Acres Police Lt. Matt Berger.

Investigators are using the Cox hoodie as a possible lead. They've contacted the company to see if the picture matches any employees for former employees.

No vehicle was seen during the incident. If you recognize the suspect or have any information, call Warr Acres police at (405)-789-3329.
