Collinsville police are searching for a man who they say grabbed a fistful of cash from a restaurant cash register and then ran off Friday morning.

A statement from the department said a black man wearing black and white pajama pants, a denim jacket and a black and white ball cap with an “STL” logo on it entered the Taco Bell at 1001 Beltline Road shortly after 10 a.m. and placed an order. When the clerk opened the register to make change, the man reached over the counter, grabbed an unknown amount of cash and then ran northbound on foot.

No one was reported hurt in the theft. Police urge anyone with information about the theft to contact Detective Mark Kuechle at 618-344-2131, ext. 5138 or Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-8477.
