Police in Shiloh are looking for a man who was captured on surveillance video during an armed robbery Friday night at a convenience store.

The robbery was reported at 11:37 p.m. Friday at a Circle K located at 2411 Lebanon Ave. No injuries were reported. Det. George Fender said an undisclosed amount of money was taken from the store.

A surveillance image released by the Shiloh Police Department showed one suspect, police said.

The suspect was described as a black male between the ages of 30 and 40, standing 6-feet tall with a medium build. Police said the person was wearing a black jacket, black pants, black shoes, black gloves and a dark stocking hat pulled down over his face at the time of the robbery.

The suspect allegedly displayed a handgun and fled on foot toward the Shiloh Car Wash, located east of the store.

Earlier this year in a separate case, two men with a handgun allegedly tried to rob the same Circle K location. Both subjects were also captured on the store’s surveillance video in August.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts or the robbery should call the Shiloh Police Department at 618-632-9047.
