The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office is asking for tips on a suspect who robbed a convenience store on Aug. 18.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5-9 to 6 feet tall and weighing between 220 and 250 pounds.

He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with red stripes under the sleeves and gray sweatpants.

He was carrying a black and green backpack with draw strings.

According to the sheriff’s report, he brandished a black, semi-automatic handgun. The model and caliber aren’t known.

He walked into the One Stop store at 6908 W. Fremont Rd. shortly after 6 a.m. and motioned with the gun for one of the clerks to move to the cash register and give him all the money.

Less than $100 was reported stolen.

Two clerks were working at the time. They told deputies the suspect left in a gray Cadillac. It was found abandoned a few miles away on Woodrich Road and authorities believe the suspect stole the vehicle before committing the robbery.

There were no injuries reported.

The Sandusky County Sheriff’s Office and Bureau of Criminal Investigation are assisting in the case.

Anyone with information about the case should contact the Ottawa County Sheriff’s office at 419-734-4404.
